The Bucyrus Fire Department has welcomed the city’s newest ambulance, reports Bucyrus Telegraph Forum.
Council members approved spending $292,484 in CARES Act funding to purchase the 2020 four-wheel drive ambulance, a power-loading cot system, an ultraviolet air-purification system and an ultraviolet surface disinfection lamp.
The city is now solely responsible for providing emergency medical services within city limits. They had previously voted to leave the Central Joint Ambulance District.
In April, the department accepted delivery of a new Sutphen pumper truck with a rescue body, a 2,000-gallon-per-minute pump and a 30-gallon foam cell. It holds 1,000 gallons of water.
