A 2012 model ambulance was added to the fleet of the Lehighton Ambulance Association, thanks to a $125,000 grant from the Pa. Department of Community and Economic Development.
The Chevrolet G3500 Chassis is a PL custom Medallion ambulance.
Joni Gestl, administrative coordinator for the ambulance association, said the purchase price was $147,068. A 2001 Ford was traded-in for $2,000 off the purchase price.
She said state Rep. Doyle Heffley assisted in the procurement of the grant.
The ambulance was put into service during the weekend.
