FALLBROOK - Fallbrook Regional Health District and North County Fire Protection District proudly announce the arrival of the newest Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulance that will be stationed at North County Fire Station 1 in Fallbrook. The new ambulance replaces an older ambulance that was destroyed in a Christmas Eve traffic accident.
In 2019, the two organizations formed a joint agreement to collaborate on funding all new ambulances at 50% cost-sharing, and this latest delivery marks the continuation of that plan.
"It has not been an easy road, as supply chain issues caused delays with receiving the ambulance," said Fire Chief Keith McReynolds. "But the new ambulance brings updated equipment and technology to the district, ensuring the best care for patients."
It will be staffed with a highly trained emergency medical technician and paramedic, allowing for efficient transport of critically ill or injured patients.
FRHD's CEO Rachel Mason outlined how was extremely proud of the partnership by saying, "Our two special districts work well together in ensuring that our residents have access to the best emergency responses possible. Our districts are a great example of collaboration and how local entities can work together to get things done."
