That's because in Wayne they have to have the biggest and the best around. Did you ever see the size of the ambulances in Wayne? Totally over the top from what is really needed. Every ambulance doesn't have to be that big for normal emergency calls. 1 Heavy rescue, 2 Rescue ambulances one uptown and one downtown and the rest just your standard size rigs would do. But this is Wayne and we do what we do best and that's SPEND THE TAXPAYERS MONEY.
