County Fire receives new Paramedic Ambulance in Lucerne Valley

LUCERNE VALLEY: On March 25th, 2014 the County Fire Dept. at station 8 in the community of Lucerne Valley accepted delivery of a 2014 Ford F450 4X4 ambulance. The funding for the new piece of equipment was provided by the vehicle replacement fund, which is part of the county general fund.

County Fire made the decision to upgrade to an F450 to provide a higher Gross Vehicle Weight Rating on the ambulance. Lucerne Valley offers a unique response area including rugged terrain, dirt roads and sandy washes. The larger truck chassis will also improve traction in sand, mud, and snow.

“We want to ensure our personnel are able to respond as expected when time is critical during an emergency situation” says Division Chief Britt Sipe. This new ambulance replaces an older 2-wheel drive F-350 model that will be placed into reserve status.
