On July 1st the Department staffed up its new ambulance possition. There was a kick off ceremony held at station 2. Members have been working on training 4 new firefighters. Matt Vickery, Chuck Hopkins, Brendan Lyons and Jim Mazzola. The new ambulance will be staffed from 0800-2000 hrs daily and provide EMS services primarly to the West Concord area. The ambulance itself was pruchased by a generous resident of West Concord. Monies were also donated to defray the costs of equiping the ambulance by Middlesex School.
