County upgrades ambulance fleet

-A A +A

Suzette Cook, Reporter

With the approval of Levy County Public Safety Director Mitch Harrell’s request to transfer of $140,000 from reserves to the equipment fund, three new ambulances will be headed to Levy County.

The Levy County Board of County Commissioners’ approval went toward the total $653,000 price tag for three Ford-550s.

Harrell said changes in ambulance specifications in 2016, which added weight to the trucks, is prompting the change from Mercedes to Ford, along with a switch from diesel fuel to gasoline motors.

“The diesel exhaust systems have issue,” Harrell said. “A major benefit of switching to Ford vehicles is that our fleet maintenance can work on the vehicles, and we have the computer to be able to read the codes when the check engine light comes on.”

According to Harrell, the purchase order will be submitted by Friday “so that they can order the trucks.”
