Va. City Buys First Ambulance in 50 Years

November 15, 2017

The Charlottesville Fire Department in Virginia will purchase its first ambulance in more than 50 years, reported NBC29.

The ambulance will be purchased with leftover funds after a new ladder truck came in under budget. Until now, the city has relied on ambulance services from a local volunteer rescue squad, but demand has increased since the Fire Department introduced a 24-hour medic unit.

The ambulance is expected to begin service in the next 30 to 60 days. The department plans to buy additional ambulances over the next few years.
