City to lease two EMS units

The Aurora City Council authorized the lease/purchase of two new ambulances at its Aug. 27 meeting, reflecting plans to upgrade two of the four emergency vehicles in the city’s ambulance fleet.
Having launched its fire-based EMS service earlier this year, City Administrator Rick Melcher reported that one of the ambulances, a 2008 model, broke down on Interstate 80 recently and another 20-year-old unit was showing signs of age. City leaders determined that two new ambulances were needed and the decision was made to make the change now, hoping to close the deal while 2019 models are still available.
