CCEMS Ambulance Gets A Makeover

A Clay County EMS ambulance is getting a makeover.

CCEMS has their ambulances on service rotations. CCEMS Service Director Alec Trembath says the process helps to cut costs and keep the fleet running smoothly:

Trembath says in addition to the ability to swap patient compartments, another recent development of modern ambulances is a UV sterilization light, which two of the CCEMS fleet now have:

Trembath says though a lot of UV sterilization products on the market are gimmicks, he’s found fried moths inside the compartment after using the light. He says, “if it kills moths, it’ll kill COVID!”
