Middlebury EMS acquires a new ambulance

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury Regional EMS officials are celebrating delivery of a new ambulance, and the organization continues to raise money to pay off debt for the Braun Signature Series all-wheel-drive vehicle.
The new vehicle will take the place of a 2009 ambulance that had been experiencing mechanical issues, according to MREMS Executive Director Teena Betourney.
As of this writing, the organization had raised $135,000 toward the $185,000 purchase. MREMS has taken out a loan to cover the remaining $50,000, which it plans to repay through contributions. The Middlebury nonprofit last week sent out several thousand solicitation letters to prospective donors.
In a fitting tribute to one of its founding members and most ardent supporters, the license plate on the new ambulance reads “WEDGE,” in honor of the late George “Wedge” Murdoch.
With headquarters off South Street, Middlebury Regional EMS provides around-the-clock medical, rescue and ambulance services to residents in 11 Addison County communities.
Those interested in more information on how to contribute toward the new ambulance may call MREMS at 388-3286.
