Description: No matter what the emergency, the Play Friends Emergency Squad is ready to get on the scene fast! On land, there's a 4-1/2" long ambulance, equipped with a lift-off roof and a stretcher. For sea, there's a boat with a detachable motor (boat can be carried on top of ambulance roof). For air, there's a helicopter with a propeller that rotates. Includes 2 Play Friends as the "medical team" and 2 patients.

The helicopter sold in this set is similar to the #470 Rescue Center helicopter, except this set's copter DOES NOT have a drop rope with a hook on the bottom. The ambulance is exclusive to the Emergency Squad, as is the stretcher and medical team figure with yellow hair.
