The Kingsburg Tri-County Health Care District has generously provided over $350,000 for the purchase of a new ambulance, auto load cots and equipment for the City of Kingsburg Fire Department; and the new ambulance is a 2019 Freightliner Heavy Rescue Type 1 Ambulance which allows for additional equipment, including the Jaws of Life, for quick response times to accidents and auto load cots for the safety of our Paramedics/EMTS and their patients; and The Kingsburg Fire Department responds to approximately 1,900 EMS calls annually, which is 80% of their calls; and adding this additional ambulance will enhance the care for residences in the district.
“We at the Kingsburg Fire department want to express our deep gratitude for the generous donations over the last two years from the Tri-county Healthcare District that have allowed us to purchase the badly needed ambulance and advanced life support equipment to better serve our community and the residents of the district. We now can have confidence and pride to respond with the best of equipment to the needs of the district not just in Kingsburg but in Fresno, Tulare and Kings counties as well as our neighboring cities.” Kingsburg Fire Chief Tim Ray.
“The Kingsburg Tri-County Health Care District is proud and honored to be able to partner with our local Fire Department and help provide high quality, first responder care to our District residents. It is especially meaningful to us because we know the Fire Department personally and know how much they truly care about the health and well being of our community. It is our hope and desire to continue partnering with them and other organizations to serve the health needs of every person in our District.” Kingsburg Tri-County Health Care District Board Chairman Arlie Rogers.
