“Two new ambulances are now in service for the City’s Emergency Medical Services team. EMS Director Mike Thomas said the trucks are Ford 550s and have a combined cost of about $700,000, funded by the City last year.

Medic 1 will serve the West End, and Medic 2 will serve the South End, out of the South Public Safety Center. Both trucks have features including air filtration systems that use UV light to neutralize airborne pollutants and bacteria, essential for deterring the spread of COVID-19.

An additional two ambulances are on order, in an unprecedented upgrade for the fleet. “We’ve never had four new trucks at once,” Thomas said.” -City of New Bedford.
