QUAD AMBULANCE DISTRICT PURCHASES NEW RESCUE TRUCK

By Karen Mundy The Press-News Published: November 20, 2012 12:00AM

Quad Ambulance District recently purchased a new rescue truck, but this purchase was made only after extensive research and financial planning by Quad staff and board members.

The truck equipment will include-- but is not limited to-- a hydraulic jaws of life, ropes, airbags, hand tools and mini-light plant. The truck will aid in many types of accidents and emergency situations such as automobile collisions, farm mishaps and rescues of people trapped in wells and other places.

The rescue truck is replacing a 1994 retired ambulance which was grossly overloaded and under equipped. The new unit has a 20-year life expectancy.

The truck and chassis were purchased from Wendell Fords of Waynesburg and the Ford Company shipped it to the Life Star Company in VanWert who completed the body of the unit with the upgraded tools and equipment.

The vehicle's complete cost was $185,000, but Quad's original quotes for the unit were more than $250,000. According to John Whitacre, assistant chief of Quad, there was significant savings on the unit by purchasing it from Wendell's and Life Star.

"We were able to save on the unit cost and also the holding charges. We did most of the other equipment purchasing in house and shopped vigorously to find the best deal," said Whitacre.

Quad staff and board members have been looking into the purchase for over three years, and they encumbered monies over time from levy funds. Paramedic Steve VanMeter, who has more than 10 years experience in rescue services, used his knowledge to help with the research into the purchase.

In addition to the new rescue truck, Quad has two advanced-life ambulances.

Quad Ambulance District provides 24-hour service, seven days a week to its district, which includes the villages of Magnolia and Waynesburg and the townships of Sandy (Stark County) and Rose. These services are provided by seven full-time paid employees, 14 part-time staff members and five on the rescue team, which includes paramedics, advanced and basic life support personnel.

Annual runs for Quad are between 520-560.

Jim Herstine is the chief of Quad. Board of directors are: Ronnie Reed, Sandy Township; Brian Cairns, Rose Township; Jerry Shilling, Magnolia; and Dr. Brady Kail, Waynesburg.
