Thanks to a $41,000 donation by Mendocino Coast Hospital Foundation (MCHF) and a $45,000 donation by Mendocino Coast Ambulance Support (MCAS) group, our hospital ambulance service has a new, advanced life support ambulance.
We wouldn’t have this wonderful new ambulance without the generosity of our donors. We’re extremely grateful, and proud to serve our community with this new state-of-the-art emergency vehicle.
According to Morgan Daniel, our paramedic coordinator, the vehicle, a Leader Mercedes diesel Sprinter Van, has a well-lit, clean modern interior design with lots of cabinet space.
“Our equipment is laid out nicely, and easy to get to,” Daniel notes. “And the new four-point safety belts (lap and shoulder) are an important new safety feature for crew members working in the back of the van. What really makes this a great ambulance for us is its smoother, quieter ride, and its more functional design. We can stand up in the back, which is a huge plus. In the older ambulances we’re hunched over. Overall it provides us with a much better work environment.”
