The City of Auburn is set to expand its ambulance fleet with the acquisition of a new vehicle, following the City Council’s approval of a $234,673 budget transfer.
This addition will increase Auburn City Ambulance’s fleet to a total of six vehicles. Officials detailed the operational plan to the Council, stating that four ambulances will be actively in service, while two will serve as backups to manage increased call volumes and cover shift changes.
The decision comes in response to challenges faced by the ambulance service, where high call volumes and maintenance issues have occasionally left crews without an available ambulance.
Fortunately, due to the vendor’s current surplus of ambulances, the new vehicle is expected to be delivered promptly, significantly boosting the city’s capacity to respond to emergency calls efficiently.
