Copper Fire Protection District Receives New Ambulance

Copperopolis, CA...On February 4th, the Copperopolis Fire Protection District was delivered a new ambulance. The unit significantly enhances the teams ability to provide Advance Life Support and Rescue for the Copperopolis Community.

Ford F450 4X4 Type 1 Ambulance (Large Patient Compartment mounted on a truck chassis. Designed to be very sturdy and able to carry lots of gear). Supplied with inventory for:
- Medical Emergencies (everything an ambulance carries)
- Vehicle Accidents (extrication/stabilization gear)
- Fires (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus/forcible entry tools/thermal imaging camera).

With 84 % of our calls being Emergency Medical Services and Rescue, this is the best vehicle to provide medical care to the community. M232 (Medical Unit 232) is Staffed with a Paramedic & Firefighter able to provide
- Rescue
- Advanced Life Support Intervention
- Life Saving Care

We can care for victims/patients inside the ambulance when no shelter is available until a transport unit arrives.
EST 1936 "For The Protection Of Life And Property"

We can transport patient(s) to a landing zone, an incoming ambulance or a hospital if the incoming transport ambulance has an extended ETA.

Stationed at CFPD station #2 which is located in the center of the Copperopolis population concentration, minimizing response times to the majority of incidents.

Vote YES on measure C so that Copperopolis Fire can access funds that the taxpayers have already paid!

So many medical calls in Copper year round. This will go a long ways in helping.

    Too bad they cannot transport to the hospital. Fire based EMS is more timely and efficient than profit based ambulance providers. I've been told ALA is now profit based not nonprofit. Thus we have wait times throughout the county.
    We need to change from a for profit system to a dual role fire based EMS delivery system. The firefighters are our Paramedics all proceeds return to the community for personnel and equipment. Win-Win

      Propaganda is "information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote a political cause or point of view."

      The bansters promoting Yes on B have been misleading the residents of our county since they started collecting signatures.

      And, they're "smart" enough to deface their own propaganda (signs) in an effort to get some press. It would also helps deflect attention to this: "Local Resident Challenges Measure B Authors Bill McManus & David Tunno For “Misleading” Voters."
