I am a career paramedic and also volunteer my time for a local volunteer fire department that operates a BLS ambulance in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Our fire department has finally agreed we need a second ambulance to help cover our increasing call volume, but the EMTs that run on the ambulance and the members of the fire department differ on the weather to purchase a used ambulance or a new ambulance. The fire department only wants to spend $20,000 on a used ambulance, but the EMTs would like to see a brand new ambulance sitting in the bay. My first question is what does the group think about new ambulances vs. used ambulances? Personally, I feel that most used ambulances were trader or sold by their original owners for a reason, why make their problem our problem. Second, the EMTs are actively looking at grants and other ideas to purchase an ambulance with minimal expense to the fire department. So far I found a local state grant that could give us up to $10,000 and also a low interest state loan of $50,000 that over 10 years would cost about $450 a month. Does the group have any other ideas on local or federal grants, or any ideas on how to raise funds to purchase a new ambulance? Any help would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!!

Anybody have any new topics? This has turned into a ghost town.

I hope you are doing well and never have to go through that ordeal again. Hopefully things are straightened out there now.

A bill just passed the Senate committee on Homeland Security that not only gives more coverage for injury and death benefits but also corrects the errors created when the Ryan White Act was reauthorized. The language requires that first responders by notified if they had the possibility of being exposed to a bloodborne pathogen. The bill is going to the full Senate for a vote. Make sure you write to our senators and tell them to vote yes for this bill! If you need addresses, let me know and I will post them.
