PUBLIC SAFETY: Cliffside Park has put a 2014 Braun Chief XL Ford E450 emergency medical vehicle into service, replacing an older ambulance that logged more than 150,000 miles.

“There comes a point when deploying new equipment is more effective than maintaining older equipment,” Mayor Thomas Calabrese said. “It is essential that EMS that our emergency responders have the equipment necessary to effectively serve our residents in times of need.”

Councilwoman Dana Martinotti, the borough EMS liaison, echoed the mayor’s sentiments while noting that the ambulance squad responds to an average of 300 calls a month.

Rreplace older vehicles with state of the art ambulances “is generally more cost effective than trying to repair an aging vehicle which continuously keeps breaking down and being put out of service,” she said.
