WOODSTOCK — The Woodstock Volunteer Fire Association’s open house to tour the brand-new emergency ambulance will be postponed until the threat of the coronavirus is passed.
In the future, the event is hosted by volunteers of the Woodstock Emergency Medical Service branch of WVFA and by member/volunteers of WVFA.
The new ambulance is a  2019Trauma Hawk model manufactured by AEV (American Emergency Vehicles) in North Carolina on a Ford F-550 XLT chassis.  It was purchased for $230,000 through Eastford Fire & Rescue Sales using town funding (WVFA reserves) and with proceeds of a $100,000 business loan secured by WVFA from bankHometown in Woodstock.
“The EMS and WVFA volunteers are extremely proud of the new ambulance and are excited to introduce this acquisition to the community,” said WVFA Chief Eric Young.
The new unit has the most advanced features of any ambulance in the history of Woodstock, Young said.  It has a drop-down door on one side to help EMTs better access to patients being transported, keyless entry for safety, tinted glass for privacy, and 360 degree cameras on the outside including an aerial look down at the ambulance and an accident scene.
