Lethbridge Red Cross Given Retired Ambulance To Act As Mobile Office
Lethbridge: The City has donated a retired ambulance to the Lethbridge branch of the Canadian Red Cross.
The vehicle will be retrofitted to act as a mobile office that the Red Cross can use when responding to personal or municipal disasters. It will carry items such as blankets, teddy bears and hygiene kits that they provide to clients. As well can be used to interview clients in a confidential space.
"The City has promised that it'll be in drivable condition when we take delivery of it. It is a retired ambulance, so it's high milage and has been driven hard, but with our partners offering to provide maintenance and given the fact that we won't be driving it a lot of distance, we're confident we'll be able to use it for years to come." said Jim Christie with the local branch.
The ambulance also has an on-board electrical system that can be used to make warm snacks and beverages, re-charge cell phones, radios and computers.
