Milpitas Police Department MedEvac

The Lenco MedEvac was designed to meet the combined requirements of SWAT & Tactical EMS Teams. The MedEvac’s ballistic protection gives police and medical personnel the ability to enter “hot zones” and provides a safe and effective environment to deal with critical incidents, provide emergency medical care, facilitate rescue operations, or conduct evacuations. The MedEvac can be used in dangerous call-out situations and will provide our officers an opportunity to de-escalate tense conflicts with armed, or potentially armed, suspects.
