According to Freeman, SCAT always has two ambulances, and the old “SCAT 1″ was traded in for this new ambulance, and has become the new “SCAT 1″. Next time they get a new ambulance, it will replace “SCAT 2″ and take its number.

She says, as you might expect — safety is very important to the ambulance crew, and this new ambulance has some great safety features.

The new ambulance, which is a Chevy, customized by the LifeLine ambulance company, runs on a different fuel, says Freeman.

She says she assumes the reason it uses gasoline is because diesel is becoming more expensive.

Freeman says the ambulance had its first call shortly after it came to town.
