Some new wheels for the La Grande Fire Department. The new 2019 Medic 2 made its debut last week… replacing the old 1996 model. It’s a brand new 2019 Chevrolet model Medic 2 ambulance, and already it’s been put to use. Of the $180,000 budgeted for the new ambulance, $135,000 was from the capital expenditures fund. The remaining $45,000 came from money that had been set aside in previous years and earmarked for fire services. The department was able to keep the new purchase under budget… saving tens of thousands of dollars by transferring and recertifying equipment from the old Medic 2, including the electric lift stretcher system, monitors and intravenous pumps.
