Hello Seasky,

My research shows that there are an estimated 35,000 to 48,000
ambulances in the United States.

The sources of these figures are as follows:

According to Form 20-F Sec Filing by  Pyng Technologies Corp, there
are an estimated 48,000 ambulances in the United States.
?The pre-hospital market in North America is made up of over 48,000
ambulances in the United States and 3,600 in Canada (and over 100,000

Pyng Technologies Corp

According to Montgomery County Emergency Medical Services(EMS), there
are 40,000 ambulances nationwide.

?Today nationwide there are more than 2 million trained first
responders, medically trained telecommunicators, emergency medical
technicians, paramedics, emergency nurses and physicians. There are
more than 14,000 ambulance services which operate about 40,000
licensed ambulances.?

Zoll Medical Corporation states in their  FORM 10-K Sec Filing that
they believe there are 35,000 ambulances in the United States,

?Presently, we believe that most of the estimated 35,000 ambulances in
the U.S. are equipped with defibrillators, and that other
first-response emergency vehicles will represent an increasingly
important market for cardiac resuscitation equipment as the medical
community places increased priority on providing such equipment and
the necessary training to all first responders.?
