Kahnawake Fire Brigade orders new ambulance


The Kahnaw�:ke Fire Brigade (KFB) wishes to inform the community that it has placed an order today for a new ambulance to replace the one that was damaged in an accident last month. It was deemed that it wasn�t feasible to repair the older ambulance and, thus, it was written off.  

The new vehicle, a 2022-model Crestline Commander, is expected to be in service by July or August of this year.

�We signed the purchase agreement today,� said KFB Fire Chief David Scott. �We�ve been dealing with Crestline for many years and have been extremely pleased with the performance of their vehicles. We�re very confident that the brand-new vehicle will meet the needs of the KFB and the community.�

The cost of the new ambulance is $231,873.00. Less than $20,000.00 will come from the insurance claim; the remainder will come from contingency funds put aside for such emergencies.

Until the new vehicle enters service the KFB will continue to operate a rented ambulance at a cost of $125 per day.
