Hall Ambulance Service Unveils Expanded Ambulance Fleet With Multiple Safety Upgrades

BAKERSFIELD, CA –Today, Hall Ambulance Service, Inc. further strengthened their commitment to Kern County when they unveiled recent additions to their ambulance fleet, according to Harvey L. Hall, founder and company president. The new state of the art ambulances have multiple patient enhancements and are the safest that the company has ever purchased.

“We are constantly working to enhance our ambulances to offer the utmost in safety to our patients, our EMT’s and paramedics” said Hall.

Gary Hunter, President of El Monte based Leader Industries, builder of the newly designed ambulances points out that ‘the new “modular” ambulances have a stronger body construction that will protect all occupants in the unlikely event of an accident. Other modifications include more space for patients and paramedics, increased storage for oxygen and other medical supplies, added safety concepts in LED lighting inside and out, enhanced rear graphics, and higher grade reflective materials for greater visibility.’

“Each year we respond to over 65,000 requests for emergency assistance. With a 9-1-1 response zone that ranges from Boron to Taft and Frazier Park to Shafter, our vehicles must be in tip top condition. Because of mileage and regular wear and tear on vehicles, safety and service enhancements, they must be periodically replaced,” Hall noted.

Celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2011, Hall Ambulance Service has been providing pre-hospital care and transportation for the residents of Kern County since 1971. Hall’s ongoing commitment to Kern County includes Paramedic Ambulance Service, Critical Care Transport, Air Ambulance, and Non-emergency Medical Transportation.
