The munchies must have set in.

Weird.. Most ambulances have a switch on their panel to prevent this while the truck is running.

Engage button, turn and remove keys.. Go do your EMT/Medic shiat while the truck stays running and warm..

Along comes criminal mastermind.. Open door, presses the brake to put it in drive... Engine turns off the second they press the brake.. They ain't going anywhere.

When I steal ambulances, I prefer to abandon them inside a tunnel and make my escape through the storm drain.

That's actually a pretty good way to pass yourself off as an EMT.

Ours doesn't, and it's only a year old. Some services may require this for all of their rigs and/or it may be a standard feature for some manufacturers, but I don't think that I would go so far as to say that it's an industry standard.

Does it even have enough clearance?!
Friend asked me to help him move and if I could drive the U-haul. Then proceeds to drive to his apartment that has a shortcut through a tunnel that has a very low height.

/yeah, I stopped. I was so paranoid due to driving something that big for the first time that I noticed, even though I wasn't sure of the directions and focusing on him.

A fast food run seems like a great idea. Who are we to tell someone what to do with their stolen ambulance?!

Personally, I have a background of no medical training aside from occasional CPR certifications. If I decided to steal an ambulance, I feel I could make the responsible decision to NOT use the ambulance for its intended purposes. Why not grab a quick bite to eat in a drive-thru with emergency lights on? I'm just trying to be realistic.

Stealing the ambulance? Nah, too much work. Just jump in the back and steal everything that fits in your pockets and then walk out casually, and blend in the crowd like Kevin Spacey did in Unusual Suspects.

Of course you get some fast food after stealing an ambulance. I've heard prison food is pretty bad so you might as well enjoy freedom while you can.

They wouldn't serve walk up customers, so you gotta do what you gotta do.

I would take it on a high speed race from Connecticut to California.

Ours don't either.  We never lock them on calls and always leave them running.  Just get on and drive away.

/Be sure to disable the GPS

We don't have GPS either, but I'm in a town of about 400 people, so it probably wouldn't be that hard to find. Drive around town for 5 minutes and see whose driveway it's parked in. If we're in the "big city" (~16,000) that has the hospital that we transport to most often, I'll take the keys out if we stop for coffee or something. Just can't trust those city-folk.

Although, now that I think about it, the chassis is 2019 Ford F350, so it probably has GPS built in, but I have no idea how to track it.

When i steal ambulances, I totally do that.

The Paramedic missions are the worst but it's worth it for infinite sprint.

We wouldn't have these problems if drive-thrus would just let people walk up to the window.
