[ARCHIVED] New Ambulances Rolling Into Service

new poway ambulance

Two new ambulances are being put into service as part of a planned equipment refresh for the Poway Fire Department. The first ambulance (Medic 3791) is operating out of Fire Station 1 on Community Road. The second ambulance (Medic 3793) is in the final stages of being equipped and will be stationed at Fire Station 3 on Pomerado Road.

With the refresh, the older ambulances move into reserve status at their respective fire stations. Reserve units ensure that there’s no disruption of service when a frontline unit is out for maintenance. The former reserve ambulances are sold at auction after equipment and Poway Fire Department graphics are removed. The radio equipment is retained for use in the new ambulances.

The new ambulances may look a little different than what Poway residents are used to seeing. They are debuting a deeper red paint color and updated graphics that will become the standard for all new Poway Fire Department apparatus moving forward.

Last year our Poway ambulances logged an average of 1,780 miles per month and responded to more than 3,200 incidents.
