Titusville Ambulance Finds New Home

Through the generosity of Parrish Medical Center and its foundations, Titusville Fire and Emergency Services was presented with a 1997 E-One ambulance over a decade ago.  The unit was placed into service as part of the department's transition from basic life support (emergency medical technician level) to advanced life support (paramedic level) emergency medical response care for its citizens.  Rescue 13 has delivered paramedics and their life saving skills in response to our citizens' emergency needs over the years, but at 87,000 miles, it was time to retire it from emergency use.  However, the unit was not quite ready for the scrap yard and had many useful non-emergency response miles left in it.

On October 10, Titusville's Interim Fire Chief Scott Gaenicke and Operations Chief Michael Woodward presented the keys of R-13 to Dave Casey, Chief at the Florida State Fire College in Ocala, Florida.  The unit will now play an active role at the Fire College to supplement current programs and future E.M.T. training initiatives.  As stated by Chief Gaenicke, "We are fortunate to be partnered with Parrish Medical Center and grateful for the impact they have made in improving emergency medical services in Titusville.  It is good to know this vehicle will live on at the fire college, giving up-and-coming emergency medical professionals the training needed to become our future community emergency responders."
