Operations - Unit 9
Due to the increasing call volume and an aging Unit 7, GERMS purchased a new ambulance, Unit 9, that was delivered on February 3, 2011. Unit 9 is a new, state-of-the-art type III ambulance mounted on a Ford E-350 gasoline chassis. It was manufactured by PL Custom Emergency Vehicles in Manasquan, New Jersey and sold by DPC Emergency Equipment in Marydel, Delaware. GERMS, GERMS alumni, and Georgetown administratiors gathered on February 21 to dedicate the ambulance, and it officially went into service on March 13, 2011.
