Guam - The Guam Fire Department has reprogrammed about $260,000 in U.S. Department of the Interior grant money to fix its ailing fleet of ambulances. Taking the advice of the Bureau of Budget Management & Research, GFD Spokesperson Joey San Nicolas says the money will be used to repair broken down medic units in lieu of watching two new ambulances.

"As of late it has been, the first round of repairs wasn't quite as successful as we had hoped but in still sticking with the same plan, we've added more money to that as well and at this point we are at seven medics with one on standby," San Nicolas told KUAM News.

The fire department is still working to get multiple USDA grants to purchase five new ambulances by November.
