The Brunswick Division of Fire will be purchasing two emergency vehicles this year that had originally been part of the division’s 2020 budget. City Council on Monday (Jan. 11) approved the order of a 2022 ambulance chassis from Horton Emergency Vehicles for an amount not to exceed $250,000 and had a first reading of legislation to purchase a 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe command vehicle from Ganley Chevrolet of Aurora for an amount not to exceed $38,419. Fire Chief Josh Erskine said the ambulance chassis will allow the department to have two-ambulance service as soon as possible. “In my experience, with two ambulances, we will be fine,” Erskine said, adding that the re-chassis option is a more cost-effective option for essentially purchasing a new vehicle. “This seems to be a very good program, and it will save residents money and save the division money in the long run,” Erskine said. “It is essentially a whole new vehicle.”
