Earlier this evening, the Eastchester Volunteer Ambulance Corps placed their newest ambulance into service after a small ceremony and blessing by Rev. Carl Maiello, EVAC's Chaplin. This 2017 Ford E350 Lifeline Ambulance (57B3) will be replacing our aging 2007 Lifeline ambulance. This is the fourth Lifeline ambulance that we have purchased from Eastford Fire and Rescue Sales (Eastford, CT). The new ambulance is equipped with a 6.8 liter triton V10 gas engine with 305 horsepower and 420lbs-ft of torque, and it will carry the same state of the art medical equipment just like the rest of our vehicles. The vehicle graphics were done by San Signs and Awning (Yonkers, NY) and the radios were installed by GooseTown Communications (New Rochelle, NY).
A special Thank You goes out to our ambulance committee for all their time and commitment with designing the vehicle, as well as The Community Fund of Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe for their generous donations to help us purchase the ambulance.
