Literally... thousands. Each city in each state can have several companies.
im assuming that you mean the livery on vehicles. I cant find a specific date but i know that the livery was done this way because vehicle drivers may not be able to read the …word when an ambulance is behind them. Because of this, they may worry that it might be a police vehicle.

That depends on what type of ambulance you are talking about. Emergency Ambulance: most common type which provide care to people with an illness or injury. It can be road-goin…g van, boat, helicopter, or fixed-wing aircraft also known as air ambulance. Patient transport ambulance: a vehicle in which is used for transporting patients to, from or between different places for medical treatment such as hospital or dialysis for any non-urgent care. Response unit: this is also known as a fly-car and is used to reach an acutely ill or injured patient quickly so that they may give on site medical care. This type of ambulance however does not have the ability to transport patients. Response units must be backed up by an emergency ambulance. Response units can be anything from a standard car, modified van, motorcycle, bicycle, quads or horses. Charity ambulance: special type of transport ambulance for the purpose of taking sick children or adults on trips/vacations away from hospitals, hospices or care homes where they are for long term care.
Well, you know that "ambulant" means to walk. Ambulant in another format. Medically related (E.G. "...his flow is quite unfair tothe service and Sir E. Phipps rightly complain…ed of these ambulant amateurs.")
