TOWSON, MD—The Baltimore County Fire Department this week announced the purchase of 26 new medic units – an $11.5 million investment – as part of an ongoing plan to update the fleet of transport units.
The order was placed on Tuesday with Atlantic Emergency Solutions of Hanover, MD.
More than 80 percent of BCoFD’s call volume is dedicated to EMS (Emergency Medical Services).
The new units are built to industry standards and include enhanced emergency warning lighting, power load stretcher systems, and harness restraint systems for responder safety. They will feature the department’s new black-over-red color scheme.
BCoFD expects to take delivery within 18 to 24 months.
Earlier this month, the Baltimore County Fire Department announced an investment of $24 million to replace its aging engines.
