"This ambulance is a 2010 Horton Ambulance on a Ford 450 4x4 chassis. This vehicle was manufactured locally in Grove City Ohio. This vehicle is the oldest. Our medics are equipped with Physio-Control LifePak 15 cardiac monitors that have the ability to transmit EKG’s from the field to the Emergency Room and the Cardiologist. Equipment on our trucks includes Doppler stethoscopes, EZ IO drills, Broselow Pediatric kits, King Vision video laryngoscopes, Stryker Power Cot and the Lucas 2 Chest Compression device.

“Our newest ambulance is a 2015 Braun F-550 4x4 purchased through Penn Care Ambulance (manufactured in Van Wert Ohio). This truck is equipped with a state of the art power cot system that will load up to a 700 pound patient with the push of a button. All other equipment, including the Lucas 2 CPR device is the same as the other truck. Both trucks are set up very similar which allows our members to transition from 1 truck to the other without any real challenges. Some other options included on this truck include all LED emergency lighting, LED scene lighting & a side door that slides open instead of swinging open into traffic.

The “Emergency Assistance Trailer” was set up and purchased with funding from several local philanthropic groups. The trailer has 40 cots, blankets, pillows, hygiene care kits and many other items that allow us to work hand and hand with the Red Cross in Knox County when setting up a shelter in our community. The trailer has been used twice since we have set it up. Along with purchasing the trailer, funding was used to create an “electrical connection” at the Presbyterian Church in Fredericktown allowing the Fredericktown Community Fire District to utilize their portable generator to power the shelter.
“Gator 449” is an ATV equipped with BLS equipment and an AED. The insert that was installed to carry staff and the patient manufactured by a local fabricator allowing us to use it for off road transports and also for special events that we provide coverage for.
