Scituate: Grant Will Help Improve Town’s Two Ambulance

Scituate has received a $100,000 firefighter grant that will help pay for improvements to the town’s two ambulances.

Scituate Fire Department is purchasing two Stryker brand power load stretchers that help load and unload patients in and out of an ambulance with a push of a button according to Scituate Fire Chief John Murphy.

The two Stryker stretchers will be installed in Scituate’s two ambulances at a cost of roughly $67,000 within the next three months.

Scituate is also looking to purchase two Lucas brand automatic CPR machines at a cost of $13,000 each which will also be covered by the grant money.
