Guam - Hoping to bring a conclusion to the shortfall in ambulances for the island, Vice-Speaker B.J. Cruz has included authorization in the Fiscal Year 2011 budget for the Guam Fire Department to hire a grant writer. Cruz says that poor grant management at the department has resulted in missed opportunities to secure funding for new medics.
GFD Acting Spokesperson Captain Ed Flores says they are currently four ambulances, stationed in Tamuning, Barrigada, Agat and Inarajan.
