New Apparatus

Posted November 2, 2023

We have been busy working on our apparatus replacement schedule.  We sent two ambulances out for remount instead of buying brand new, saving approximately $280,000.  This aligned with our ambulance rotation and allows us to keep an ambulance in service for a minimum of 10 years before moving it to reserve status.  Obviously, call volume will determine the need to replace ambulances.  As we get busier, we may need to replace them sooner.  We are also in the process of building a new brush truck that is expected to be delivered in 2025.
