MR units are ALS vehicles (4 door pickups) for areas where there is high medical call volume. MR154 is a PHX unit with PHX markings and personnel being run out of Glendale station 154. My understanding is that it was put in service to ease the amount of times E154 had to respond to the city for medical calls. Someone else may have better info but that’s my take on it.

There's a pair of links in this post.


If you Google "Phoenix Fire MR154", you'll also find a Fox10 article about it, as well as other mentions.

There are at least a couple of MR units around the Valley. Phoenix FD MR918 runs out of FS3 during the day, and FS18 at night. Surprise FD just put MR305 into service, I do believe.

Correction, Surprise has Low Acuity 305 (LA305), not an MR unit. And I don't think it's really that new, I believe it went into service sometime last year. My mistake.
