United Donates Ambulance to Litchfield First Responders

On Thursday, August 31st , United Ambulance Service donated a 1994 Horton Type III ambulance to Litchfield First Responders . Tina Gowell, Chief of the volunteer service is grateful for this donation as the new vehicle replaces a 1989 Ford “Rescue Vehicle” that is developing various mechanical problems.

 

Though there are obvious benefits to having a newer vehicle to respond in, the Litchfield First Responders are especially pleased as the donated vehicle is equipped with lights, cabinetry, stretcher, and onboard oxygen and suction systems, some of which are not available in their current vehicle.

 

Litchfield First Responders are the primary first responder agency for the Town of Litchfield . Since January 1st of this year they have responded to over 215 calls for service. Ambulance transport services are primarily completed by the Gardiner Fire Department . When Gardiner is not available or when the location is closer to United's coverage area, United provides transport services.
