New Ambulance Arrives At Syracuse

SYRACUSE – Syracuse Rescue Squad’s new ambulance has arrived.

Officer Tim Wilson said contributions for the $225,614 vehicle are still being sought.
The squad, which is made up of 22 members, answered 384 calls in 2017. Of those, 202 were 911 emergencies, 147 transfers, a mutual aid and 34 standbys.

In the last six years, these members have responded to 2,144 calls.

Wilson also expressed a growing concern of overlapping calls. With a shortage of members that are available during works hours it is hard to staff two ambulances at the same time.

He said the squad is always seeking new members.
