DINGMANS FERRY - Delaware Township Volunteer Ambulance Corp.’s newest addition to their fleet is now in-service and responding to emergencies in Pike County. 

The 2008, Ford F-450 SuperDuty American Emergency Vehicles ambulance, was purchased used earlier this year from an ambulance dealer in Maryland. The ambulance, unit 28-7 is equipped with dual rear wheels, 4-wheel drive, and On-Spot® chains to help battle the rough Pocono Winters.

Additional features include a backup camera, LED lighting, and a Stryker Power Lift® system used to lift the stretcher into the ambulance with less back strain on EMTs and paramedics. Delaware Valley Emergency Services assisted in the Department of Health inspection process.

Ambulance 28-7 will become the workhorse of the fleet and will rack up thousands of miles traveling to local and specialty resource hospitals over the next few years.

Delaware Township Volunteer Ambulance Corp. is a nonprofit organization, established in 1975. Their funding is based primarily on voluntary donations.

Among their calendar of upcoming public events us the Delaware Township Harvest Festival, set for Saturday, September 22 at Akenac Park.

Their facility is located at 135 Park Road, Dingmans Ferry.
