Riverview, N.B. resident Matthew Kinnie has always been very adventurous.

“Pretty active guy, I really like being outdoors and doing outdoor activities,” describes Kinnie. “Anything like skiing, rock climbing, or canoeing, hiking, backpacking and that, was all the stuff I like to do in my spare time."

But 14 years ago, Kinnie’s life took an unexpected turn when he was out rock climbing with friends.

“My hand slipped and I pulled an anchor from the wall, and before my rope could catch me, I had hit a ledge. So I kind of fell backwards and I landed on the back of my head and neck.”

He knew right away that his injuries were serious….

Ambulance project shows made-in-NB innovation

Times & Transcript

For many years, we have followed the progress of Metro Moncton's own
Malley Industries, a locally owned company that evolved out of a backyard
garage into a world-class manufacturer of specialty vehicles. A large part of
the company's success can be traced back to the original contract with the
province to convert basic cargo vans into ambulances. Over the years, with this
ongoing contract, Malley Industries expanded into other specialty vehicles,
including wheelchair-accessible vans for the disabled.

Ambulance New Brunswick Unveils Next Generation Vehicle 40 new ambulances slated to start serving patients in coming 12 months

MONCTON, NB – The ambulances of today are on their way out. Ambulance New Brunswick (ANB) is transitioning its fleet of 134 ambulances from the current Ford E350 chassis to a Dodge Ram ProMaster. The first vehicles start serving patients in the coming days. As one vehicle comes to the end of its lease and is returned to the manufacturer, it will be replaced by the next generation ambulance.
The move to a new ambulance was a necessary change, said Danny Bulmer, ANB’s provincial fleet manager. 
“We learned back in 2012 that by 2015 Ford would no longer be producing the vehicle we have been using,” said Bulmer. “We thought it was a great opportunity to not just move to a new make and model, but to re-imagine the interior of our ambulances as well, and come up with a design that would work even better to benefit our patients and employees.” 
For the past two and a half years, ANB has been working together with paramedics in the field, New Brunswick’s Department of Health, and research and development team at Dieppe-based ambulance manufacturer Malley Industries to create an industry-leading ambulance.
“When we started down this road in 2012, we had three top priorities: to further enhance safety and comfort, to improve access to patients and equipment, and to optimize the interior space where paramedics spend their days treating patients,” said Jean-Marc Dugas, ANB Safety Programs Manager.
“Malley Industries is proud that we were able to provide our engineering and design expertise to this collaborative ambulance concept.” said Steen Gunderson, Vice President of Operations with Malley Industries. “This new, innovative ambulance concept will not only bring a greater degree of safety and efficiencies to the New Brunswick ambulance fleet, we believe it will set the bar for future ambulance designs.”
Here are a few of the new ambulance features:
•        Significantly larger workspace
•        Improved access to patient
•        Improved access to equipment
•        Easy-to-clean composite molded interior
•        Energy-absorbent flexible interior for enhanced safety in a potential collision
Ambulance New Brunswick expects to introduce approximately 40 new Ram ProMaster vehicles to its fleet between now and the end of the fiscal year (March 31, 2016), as Ford models exit operations.

Ambulance Nouveau-Brunswick dévoile la prochaine génération de véhicules 40 nouvelles ambulances doivent entrer en service au cours des 12 prochains mois

MONCTON (N.-B.) – Les ambulances d’aujourd’hui approchent la fin de leur voyage. Ambulance Nouveau-Brunswick (ANB) changera sa flotte de 134 ambulances du modèle de châssis Ford E350 courant à un modèle Dodge Ram ProMaster. Les premiers véhicules commenceront à servir les patients dans les jours à venir. Les véhicules qui atteignent la fin de leur bail seront retournés au fabriquant et remplacés par la prochaine génération d’ambulances.
Le changement qui mena à des nouvelles ambulances était nécessaire pour ANB, selon Danny Bulmer, directeur provincial du parc d’ambulances d’ANB.
« Nous avons appris en 2012 qu’à partir de 2015, Ford ne produirait plus les véhicules dont nous nous servons, » affirme Bulmer. « Nous avons pensé qu’il s’agissait là d’une excellente occasion de non seulement changer à une nouvelle marque et un nouveau modèle, mais aussi de revoir l’intérieur de nos ambulances afin de l’améliorer pour mieux servir nos patients et nos employés. »
Au cours des derniers deux ans et demi, ANB a travaillé avec des travailleurs paramédicaux sur le terrain, le ministère de la Santé du Nouveau-Brunswick et l’équipe de recherche et de développement de Malley Industries, fabriquant d’ambulances basé à Dieppe, afin de créer une ambulance qui soit en tête de l’industrie.
« Quand nous nous sommes embarqués sur cette route en 2012, nous avions trois priorités : améliorer la sécurité et le confort, assurer un meilleur accès aux patients et à l’équipement et optimiser l’espace intérieur où les travailleurs paramédicaux passent leurs journées à traiter leurs patients, » explique Jean-Marc Dugas, responsable des Programmes de sécurité d’ANB.
« Chez Malley Industries, nous sommes fiers d’avoir eu l’occasion de collaborer et de mettre notre expertise en ingénierie et en conception à l’œuvre pour ce nouveau concept d’ambulance, » affirma Steen Gunderson, vice-président des opérations chez Malley Industries. « Ce nouveau concept d’ambulance novateur augmentera la sécurité et l’efficacité de la flotte d’ambulances du Nouveau-Brunswick; qui plus est, nous croyons que cette ambulance va fixer la barre pour la conception future des ambulances. »
Voici quelques aspects de la nouvelle ambulance :
•        Espace de travail considérablement plus grand
•        Meilleur accès au patient
•        Meilleur accès à l’équipement
•        Moulures intérieures en plastique facile à nettoyer
•        Intérieur flexible qui absorbe l’énergie pour une protection accrue lors de collisions potentielles
Ambulance Nouveau-Brunswick s’attend à introduire environ 40 nouveaux véhicules Ram ProMaster à sa flotte d’ici la fin de l’année financière (31 mars 2016) alors que les modèles de Ford seront retirés des opérations.
