Hello,

this is a rescue fire truck carrying tools to assist in extinguishing fires and rescuing people. Although it looks a lot like an ambulance, there is no space in the back for treating people.

Enjoy!

At first I was surprised of your title of a Ambulance Fire Engine, but this is not an ambulance nor is this truck used to pump water.

I looked up about Steel City 6341 and that is definitely a Rescue Fire Truck. It does not say ambulance on it, only rescue. I have built the FDNY Rescue Truck one and this reminds me of it and those trucks are only to carry specialized tools for rescuing not to transport ill people. Also I do not think this truck pumps water either because I looked on both sides of it and it does not have pipes for water, which all pumpers truck need to do that. I also saw a video of showing the back of it, which the door doesn't look like ambulance doors because there's no windows and more of a tool storage area.

Oh okay. I really thought this was half an ambulance because it says "Rescue". So its real name is "Rescue Fire Truck"? Does "Rescue Fire Engine" work, too (I am not a native English speaker)?
Thank you for clearing things. I really wasn't sure what to call this vehicle because it looks so much like an ambulance in my eyes, but it says "Fire" on its side...
I am going to change the name ^^

I would use truck instead of engine. Generally, the fire engine is only for the rigs that pump or carry water. Actually I think a better name should be Fire-Rescue Truck, since fire truck is something else and that's what the paint says.
Anyways, can I ask what country are you from?

Okay, then I am going to call it "Fire-Rescue Truck" xD
Thanks for your explanation again! I was not familiar with these word differences.
I am from Germany. We have fire departments, ambulances and the THW (Technisches Hilfswerk) or German Federal Agency For Technical Relief (Wikipedia says that). I think the THW comes close to this Fire-Rescue thing because they also are neither a fire department nor do they treat people. They help the fire fighters and doctors do their job by providing special equipment for getting people out of dangerous situations (can really be anything).

Ahh, nice, now I understand what it actually is!
Omg that took so long xD
So it is part of the fire department, but does only carry tools. No water, no injured people.
It's like a mobile tool box ^^

This looks great! I really like the way you use banners in your builds.

Thank you ^^
Yeah, most my builds strongly depend on banners. But I have come to the conclusion that banners are the best way to replicate painted stuff (like stripes and letters or logos) realistically. That's why I use them so often.
