St. Mary’s is adding two brand new vehicles to its fleet.
Emergency responders have been waiting on these state-of-the-art ambulances for more than a year now.
They tell us the company that makes them is a lead in the medical field which keeps the vehicle on a bit of a back order.
Paramedic Rob Smith says, “We have a tremendous medical staff here – some of the best paramedics and EMT’s in the area. We have tremendous support from St. Mary’s Health, Ascension Health, through all areas of healthcare. So it was nice to be recognized as a provider – not just an ambulance today.”
Both ambulances even got a blessing with holy water during Tuesday morning’s ceremony.
Both trucks will primarily work out of Warrick County.
