A 1995 Chevrolet cargo van will soon be transformed into the new Browerville area ambulance. The present ambulance is a 1980 model and has served the purpose very well. It will take about 50 days to be customized and ready for service. A new ambulance fund has been set up to help pay the cost (van—$20,000, customizing—$19,000, new and replacement equipment—$8000-$10,000.) Watch the Blade for project updates. Donations can be sent the New Ambulance Fund, c/o City Hall, Browerville.
