Muroc Healthcare District continues to look out for the health & safety needs of residents living in the remote desert community of Boron, by funding the purchase of a brand new, state-of-the-art ambulance.  This advanced life support equipped, paramedic unit will be placed into service, maintained  and operated by Hall Ambulance Service under an agreement that was established in 1994, to ensure Boron residents will receive expedient ambulance service when they need it most.  This marks the sixth ambulance purchased under the agreement. 

A community presentation was made on August 9, 2013, at Hall Ambulance Post 17, located at 12566 Boron Avenue, in Boron, California.  Muroc Healthcare District Board Member James Welling made the ceremonial presentation of the keys to the new ambulance to Harvey L. Hall, Founder &  President of Hall Ambulance Service, Inc.  In addition, remarks were made by Kern County EMS Director Ross Elliott, and Boron Chamber of Commerce President Randy Smith.

The new ambulance will replace Unit 377 which was placed into service in 2009, and served the community well, having logged 200,000 miles of service on it.

The new ambulance is a Ford F350 TYPE II ambulance which boasts several new patient comfort and safety enhancements.  Most notably visible are the large reflective chevrons adorning the back of the ambulance, and on the interior of the rear doors.  This safety feature makes the ambulance highly visible, particularly at night.  It is powered by a V-10 gasoline engine, which is a change from the earlier diesel engine configuration.  In addition, the emergency lighting package on the ambulance was upgraded to add heightened visibility to the emergency response vehicle while responding to requests for medical aid.
