New AVFD Ambulance Put in Service
New $210,000 medic unit replaces mid-90s era ambulance.
Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department received a new ambulance to replace one taken out of service in January.
The new unit retails for about $210,000 before being outfitted with equipment and supplies.
One of only two fire departments in Baltimore County with two advanced life support medic units, more than 80 percent of AVFDs calls--about 1,200 responses annually--are EMS calls.
