Earlier this month the Mountain Top Fire Company was awarded a grant provided by the PA EMS Provider Foundation & Highmark. Today we have received that money and have signed documents purchasing a Stryker Power Load system for AMB 13-2. This Power Load system attaches to our stretcher and lifts the stretcher into the ambulance for our providers thus decreasing strain and possibly injury to our patient's and providers. In addition, we have also purchased one outright thus being able to equip AMB 13-1 with the same system. This project totals a upwards of $45,000 with our department only utilizing $16,000 out of pocket. Each unit costs $22,000 plus yearly preventative maintance, service agreements to keep our equipment in working condition.
