I am in need of an O2 set up, with tank if possible, base, regulator, mask, as well as an air splint set and a first aid kit that would be appropriate for a '72 ambulance/combo. Contact me on here or rgroeber@comcast.net.
Thanks,
Rich Groeber

Check with a local medical oxygen supplier, because steel tanks were used "forever", and they probably still have some lying around. The second place to check is small volunteer fire departments, since they never throw anything away. Same for the regulators. Air splints might be a little more difficult, since they were made of vinyl, and they might have cracked from age, and have been discarded. Once again, small volunteer squads might still have them squirrelled away.

Also, check with ambulance dealers who have been around for 20 years or more. Stuff is always left in trade-ins. It's one way of getting rid of stuff! I have had good luck with that in my area.

I have some air splints I can spare. It'll take me a few weeks to get to where I can send them.

May also have a reasonable oxygen regulator - will check.
