  • February 2015 - The Downey Fire Department has been approved to purchase one (1) 2015 Dodge 4500 Type 1 Road Rescue Ultramedic Modular Ambulance from Emergency Vehicle Group in the amount of $241,303.80.

  • April 2015 - The Arcadia Fire Department has been approved to refurbish and remount RA105, RA106, and the reserve rescue ambulance. The Fiscal Year 2014-15 Equipment Acquisition Budget has an approved funding of $276,000 for the purchase of one rescue ambulance to replace the existing 2000 Ford reserve ambulance, which has met the age and/or mileage requirement of the City's Vehicle Replacement Program. However, over the years, the other two front line ambulances that were manufactured by Ford in 2009 and 2010 have been undergoing constant repairs with substantial downtime due to the subpar engines that were included in those model years. Ford has acknowledged this issue and continued to repair the ambulance engines under warranty. The circumstances surrounding these Ford engines has become increasingly problematic because the constant work and maintenance to these engines is resulting in significant out-of-service time for the two front line ambulances. Once it was determined that by internally and externally refurbishing and remounting the existing "box" onto new chassis was a viable option operationally and financially, and that the level of our Emergency Medical Services delivery would not suffer, Fire personnel concluded that we could replace all three (3) ambulances with new engines and chassis. The fact that all three of the City's rescue ambulances boxes could be refurbished and remounted on a new chassis with a new engine for only slightly more funds than one fully new one provides the Fire Department the opportunity to remove two Ford engines that the Fire Department knows, and Ford has acknowledged, to be subpar. This will reduce maintenance efforts and increase readiness while saving substantial funds over time. Remounting and refurbishing three (3) rescue ambulances onto new Chevy 4500 diesel chassis will cost $304,200 and will completed by Emergency Vehicle Group Inc.

  • April 2015 - The Vernon Fire Department has been approved to purchase one (1) 2015 Urban Search & Rescue 3-Axle Vehicle in the amount of $799,609.82 from Pierce Manufacturing Inc. The new USAR vehicle will replace the current vehicle that was purchased in 2000 which no longer meets state requirements to carry specific equipment and lumber caches to maintain the departments Heavy Rescue and Task Force 2 certification. They will utilize a $400,000 Homeland Security Grant to fund half of this purchase.
