Trans 309 is the Administrative Code for manufacturing and operating requirements of a Wisconsin ambulance. Regardless if a modular box, van, or helicopter, an ambulance vehicle is subject to Trans 309 and bi-annual inspections. Trans 309 was initially created in 1986; however, changes have been made in subsequent years as needed. We've come to that point in time when Trans 309 is again being opened to make changes. This a big deal, because Trans 309 defines an ambulance vehicles exterior and interior lighting, lettering and markings and anything else you can place on or in an ambulance, to include medical supplies and equipment, even down to the number of 4x4 bandages. Wisconsin has a fairly robust system of licensed ambulances; at last count it was 1,200.
This webcast is dedicated to Trans 309 and the change process to be pursued during the year by Mr. Bernard Coxhead, Manager, Wisconsin State Patrol, Bureau of Transportation Safety, Motor Carrier Enforcement Unit.
