A new ambulance at Glendale Community College

leave a comment »

Glendale Community College became the first such college in California with its own ambulance, said Dawn Lindsay, the interim President/Supt.

The ambulance was acquired from Pasadena Fire Department and will directly benefit Glendale’s Emergency Medical Technician students. Students will work in the rig’s tight quarters,  load and unload patients and familiarize themselves with the ambulance’s various equipment.

“An ambulance [is]  more than getting them from point-A to point-B — it’s actually a tool box,” Pasadena Fire Chief Dennis Downs said. “To get them experience [for] when they get out in the field, it’s exremly valuable.”
