1998 Ford Horton Ambulances
The fire company purchased in May of 1998 two Ford Horton Type III “Model 502” ambulances. The ambulances would be equipped with all the modern medical equipment of the time.
Ambulance 391 and 392 were delivered to Bel Air in August of 1998 and placed in service in September of 1998. Ambulance 393 was purchased in February of 1999. The unit was ordered with a 1998 chassis as this cut the cost of the unit. It was delivered to Bel Air in May of 1999 and placed in service shortly thereafter.
Ambulance 391 would be involved in an accident on January 4, 2000, and due to the damage it was rechassised onto a 2001 Ford Chassis.
Ambulance 392 and Ambulance 393 would be traded in on two 2002 Ford Horton Type III “Model 502” ambulances.
