The first ambulance of modern design for URI, the department inherited this Type II van ambulance as a donation from a service in Connecticut. The van was eventually donated to the South Kingstown Police Department as a SWAT team vehicle when it was replaced.

This was the first ambulance operated by EMS. It was originally the ambulance operated by the URI Police Department until they ceased offering EMS services. This van was a converted utility van that barely functioned and was known to occasionally catch fire!
