Brewster Fire Department Accepts Delivery of New Ambulance

In late June the Brewster Fire Department accepted delivery of a 2016 Ford F550 “Superliner” Type 1 Ambulance. The vehicle was built by Life Line Emergency Vehicles of Sumner, Iowa and purchased through the manufacturer’s local dealer Specialty Vehicles Inc (SVI) of North Attleboro. This is the second department ambulance built on a Ford “F” series chassis which became necessary when Ford discontinued manufacturing the shorter “E” series chassis common to our department. Final cost to manufacture and outfit the vehicle with all equipment including radios was $242,000. The ambulance revenue account is funding the purchase through a five year lease program with annual payments in the amount of $50,000. Department personnel would like to thank the Selectmen and the residents of the community for supporting the purchase of this life saving equipment.
