Pettis County Ambulance District Receives Four New Ambulances

The Pettis County Ambulance District is one step closer to being fully operational. Pettis County Ambulance District Board Members traveled to Linn, Mo. yesterday (Sept. 19) to pick up four new ambulances.

There are two E-Series Ford Warrior Type-III ambulances and two Sprinter Type-III ambulances that range from $123,000 to $133,000 for each of them. The Ford Warrior ambulances will be used as the primary 911 and critical calls vehicles since there is more room in them. The Sprinter ambulances will be more used for transfers.

“Each ambulance will have one paramedic and one EMT,” said Ambulance District Administrator Michael Gardner. “We’ve hired enough staff to run three shifts and two personnel per ambulance, plus support for calls that may need it.”

The board members loved how the color scheme and logos turned out.  The logos took about four to five months to come up with.

The district will be operating out of the Missouri State Fairgrounds Volunteer Fire Department location until the main headquarters is ready to go in Downtown Sedalia sometime in January of 2014.
