Official Medic Squad Vehicles Have Arrived

KERN COUNTY, Calif., In November of 2023, Measure K funds provided the opportunity to expand the ALS program in unincorporated areas of Kern County. The firefighters were ready but there was a catch, what would they respond in? A solution was found, older retired Battalion Chief vehicles could be used temporarily.


This week the first official Medic Squad vehicle was placed in service, and it’s incredible! A 4×4, Ford F-550, with a custom built box by local manufacturer Douglass Truck Bodies.


Now our firefighters will have room to fit more than two people, keep their dirty turnouts out of the cab, and finally enough space for ALL their PPE and supplies.
