As part of a new six month pilot program, the vehicle will be staffed with personnel trained to get a donor family's consent, perform medical procedures necessary to keep the donor organ viable, as well as to transport the donor to the hospital so the organs can be harvested for transplant. If someone dies at home, the team will have roughly 20 minutes to start preservation procedures. (AP Photo/FDNY)
