Our ambulances are built to our specifications that we might provide the best patient care during long hospital transports out of Rappahannock County. Stocked alike with the most up to date equipment. First in the area for 12 Lead, CPAP, Lucas CPR Machine, Striker Power Load, and heated fluids. Capable of sending 12 leads to Winchester Medical Center for heart attacks.
Medic 1B was purchased with the help of EMS Grant. Bigger than Medic 1 it has better maneuverability with its great turning radius.
In the Spring of 2008 we applied for a grant from The Jesse and Rose Loeb Foundation in Warrenton, VA to either replace the chassis on the 1997 Ambulance – or to buy a new ambulance (our preferred option). The Loeb Foundation awarded us a grant in the summer of 2008 to replace our oldest ambulance. We specked out our high tech Horton Ambulance and were pleased when it arrived.
Utility 1 (a Ford 350, bought in 2007) takes providers and firefighters arriving after other apparatus have responded to the scene and brings back dirty hose, etc. Utility 1 is also a first responder unit licensed by the state. The utility was bought with money donated to the department through a will of a resident in the area. We thank her for this contribution to our department.
|A 2008 KME Tanker arrived in November 2008!||The 2000 gallon tanker is a engine/tanker with CAFS. (compressed air foam system) Equipped like Engine 1 with up to date equipment and Thermal Imager and Gas meter. Tandem rear wheels make this piece very stable. Though 33′ long it is very maneuverable in tight places. Our policy to to use as a tanker and shuttle water. However, this piece has been the first on scene and was used as the attack pumper as it has a full assignment of hose lays.|

Hazard Materials Trailer
Rappahannock County has a containment trailer for leaks. It has booms, fluff, suits, and equipment to dam and dike for a fuel leak. This trailer also serves as a mass causality trailer. The trailer is usually pulled by Attack 1 and has been used a number of times for containment of fluids from spills but never used for Mass Causality, thank goodness.
