VIDEO: Roy City Fire and Rescue Station 31 replaced its aging fleet with two new ambulances. And on Saturday, KSL got an inside look at the new ambulances.
The station went into service last week and has already gone out on calls. They said this gives their firefighters and first responders a way to provide better patient care.
When asked if crews could tell the difference between these new ambulances, their answers were a resounding “Yes.”
“Plenty of power: It gets us where we need to go,” said Battalion Chief Jake Rast.
Morgan Palmer has worked as a firefighter and advanced emergency medical tech with Roy City Fire and Rescue for the last year and a half. She has noticed a big difference after working and driving the new ambulances.
“It’s bigger — more spacious — lets us get ready quicker for those fire calls,” Palmer said.
