Ridgeview purchases new ambulances
Ridgeview recently added new ambulances to its fleet of vehicles providing emergency response service in Le Sueur and Belle Plaine.
The new ambulances were purchased as replacements for older units. By the end of 2018, a total of 12 new ambulances will be in service throughout Ridgeview’s seven-county ambulance service area. The new ambulances provide additional safety seating for crew and additional safety features for patient transport. The crew safety seats allow paramedics to be secure while performing life-saving care during transport. These new custom safety designs were prompted by recent ambulance crashes in Minnesota that left crew members severely injured due to lack of safety restraints.
