The new Emergency Medical Services/ Medical quick Response vehicle was purchased with $40,000 from the New York State and Municipal Facilities program.

The new, four-wheel drive Sport Utility Vehicle replaces a 20-year-old EMS truck.

The EMS vehicle responds to roughly two-thousand calls each year.

The money was secured in Albany by New York State Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo.

The Endwell Democrat said the vehicle can take on all kinds of weather conditions, improving the ability of the responders to get where they are needed.
