Guam - The Guam Fire Department is getting an additional ambulance added to its fleet this week. The unit was given to the General Services Agency by the military, and the purchase of a second unit is pending approval of funding. GFD purchased the used Ford F350 Chassis Type 1 ambulance for $11,000.
GFD spokesperson Lt. Ed Artero says the unit still needs to be inspected before it's used. This means the fire department will have 8 operational ambulances, which the administration states haven't occurred in over four years.
