These are the First COVID-19 Proof Ambulances in the Country


Helping the Philippines fight and respond to the coronavirus pandemic, Foton Philippines has turned over 6 units of Toano ambulances to the Philippine Red Cross. Unlike typical ambulances, these Foton units are specially equipped to battle contagious diseases such as COVID-19 by being negatively pressured.

The Foton Toano Ambulance is known as the “mobile N95 solution.” It isolates the patient from the vehicle cabin to control the spread of infection from the patient to the medical team in the ambulance. It’s also equipped with a full set of rescue equipment including a ventilator, defibrillator, ECG monitor, ultraviolet disinfection lamp, and central oxygen supply interface.


With a length close to 6 meters and a height of 1.7 meters, the Foton Toano makes for a great ambulance because it offers bigger space compared to other vans. This allows medical institutions to add more medical equipment that can be used for emergency response.

“As the virus continues to spread the demand for professional ambulance equipment in the Philippines has started to increase and we are here to provide the solution for your medical mobility needs.” Rommel Sytin, President of UAAGI, exclusive distributor of Foton vehicles in the Philippines said.

Despite the quarantine situation, FOTON has continued to provide ambulances to different government units who have signified their need during this time. Foton Philippines also has regular ambulance units available for sale in their 29 dealerships nationwide.
