City of Marfa Receives Grant for New Ambulance

MARFA, TX (KWES) -

The City of Marfa is getting a brand new ambulance
.
The Big Bend Regional Hospital District approved a $300,000 grant to the City of Marfa to help get the new ambulance on the road.

Officials say some of the equipment in the current ambulance is up to 15 years old and has more than 80,000 miles on it due to the amount of driving they have to do.

Because of how old the ambulance is, the EMS has even had to pull out of some areas they service.

The new ambulance is expected to be on the road within the next few months.
