An ambulance manufacturer is issuing recall for vehicles with faulty electrical systems.

Halcore Group, Inc. has announced that it will be recalling certain model year 2015 Horton 623, 603, 503, 553 and 453 ambulances that are equipped with the i4G system for controlling the ambulance body electrics. Due to a circuit board component being installed incorrectly, the ambulance body may have electrical system failure of the interior and exterior lights, as well as other lifesaving electrical equipment, such as the oxygen system.

Failure of ambulance body electrics can hinder emergency response and rescue efforts, increasing the risk of injury to ambulance patients.

The company believes that 18 ambulances are potentially affected.

Halcore will notify owners, and Horton will replace the affected electrical component, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in December 2015.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Horton customer service at (800) 282-5113.
