Coffee Regional Medical Center recently purchased a brand new Ford F350 Type 1 ambulance from Emergency Tactical Rescue Vehicles (ETR) thanks to special purpose local option sales tax (SPLOST) funds designated by our generous community. CRMC EMS now has a total of 7 units. These units ensure we are available to successfully respond to emergencies outside the walls of our medical center while staying true to Our Purpose; To Serve, To Heal, To Save.
The new unit is state-of-the-art and equipped with the latest life-saving technology. Also, the unit features a power load system and a power cot. This power load system allows our paramedics and emergency responders to quickly and safely load patients into and out of the unit.
