Mountainside Rescue Squad's EMS Special Operations Vehicle

This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the 1st Responder newsroom.

The Mountainside Rescue Squad took delivery of their 2023 GMC Sierra 2500 upfitted by ESI Apparatus of Montgomeryville PA. This EMS Special Operations vehicle will house their equipment for fire rehab assignments, wilderness rescues, large scale incidents, and other specialized EMS assignments. This vehicle holds 4 cases of water, a 10'x10' tent, EMS command equipment, triage equipment, bleeding control kits, wilderness EMS bag, equipment necessary for fire rehabs, an APX8500 mobile radio, and an APX8000 portable radio to maximize interoperability. A shoutout to Cliff at PrintTech in Springfield, NJ for the graphics package! They look forward to this vehicle being an asset to the Borough of Mountainside and the surrounding communities.
