In May 2013, Valley Health ordered four more Demers Type III ambulances on Chevy G4500 gasoline chassis. These ambulances feature EcoSmart idle reduction technology, mobility track safety seating in place of a squad bench, Medicool cabinet and 72″ headroom. A Howler siren and full Whelen LED lighting package round out the picture. Valley Health took delivery of their first four Demers earlier this year.
Since its formation in 1988, Valley Medical Transport (VMT) has grown into a regional medical transport system geared toward meeting the needs of a wide range of patients as well as the requirements of healthcare providers such as hospitals, physicians and nursing homes.
VMT serves a broad area, which includes seventeen counties in Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland. From stations strategically located throughout the region, Valley Medical Transport is able to quickly and efficiently responds to requests for medical transports. Requests for services are coordinated from the Central Dispatch Center located in Winchester, Virginia.
Many thanks to Chris Rucker and Valley Health for their confidence in Demers and the RedStorm team.
