Turkey is one of the few countries in the world where all ambulances are required to have LEDs.
This was one of their major aims.
They have since introduced more advanced ambulances, like the ambulances that are equipped with a laser-detecting device, but for now all ambulants have to be fitted with LEDs.
The ambulances which are equipped to be fully LED are still not fully fitted.
They still have to use light sensors and LEDs, but that is about it.
It has become a problem with ambulances.
Some ambulances still use old light bulbs and reflectors, which are expensive.
It is not uncommon for ambulances to cost a few hundred euros.
The main problem is that these light bulbs are not sufficiently shielded against ultraviolet light and the reflective material is not strong enough to stop UV rays.
Some of the ambulants with LED headlights can emit UV light, which can damage the eyes.
They need to be replaced.
LED lights are cheap, but they are also expensive to replace.
The problem is not only that they cost a lot to replace, but also that they are hard to find and do not have good warranties.
They are not compatible with all ambulations.
They must be purchased from Germany.
The other problem is the cost of the LEDs.
They should be manufactured in Turkey.
If you are looking for a full ambulance, look for an ambulance with an integrated light system.
An ambulance which does not use LEDs and is fully equipped is a real luxury.
Turkey has been looking at a full battery electric ambulance for a while now, but this was the first step to fully replacing all ambulans with LEDs, which is an exciting development.
We will bring you the latest news on new ambulance developments in Turkey, as they become available.
