Chances are you've seen what looks to be a new ambulance at the Firehouse. Well you would be correct. The District recently took delivery of a 2014 Ford E-450 Horton Ambulance. This is all new from the chassis to the modular box. The District spent close to two years working on the design and layout, both inside and out of this new ambulance. This is the first all new ambulance the District has bought in almost 15 years. The ambulance that this replaces was remounted and one of the current ambulances is still a remounted box. This has saved the District and it's tax payers several thousands of dollars over the last 15 years. Remounting an ambulance is just over half the price of a new one. This ambulance has a gas motor versus a diesel. With the new diesel emission standards Ford has discontinued the diesel motor for the E-Series. This provides a quieter ride without sacrificing performance. Stop in and check it out.
