Dartmouth Emergency Medical Services (EMS) has acquired a 2008 Ford Explorer to enable expansion in its emergency medical care services. The organization acquired the vehicle in July; it is currently being equipped for EMS use, and is expected to be fully operational at the start of the fall academic term. The vehicle will be used primarily for responding to medical calls during the weekend campus coverage program. It will also serve to transport equipment and personnel to various training classes and medical standby events.
Currently, the vehicle is being prepared for EMS use. As an emergency response vehicle, the Ford Explorer will be equipped with small interior LED emergency lighting and cabinetry to store medical supplies. Graphics will also be applied, clearly identifying the vehicle as belonging to Dartmouth EMS. The addition of a vehicle to Dartmouth EMS
