NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. (June 14, 2018) —Mobile Life Support Services, the largest emergency medical provider in the Hudson Valley, recently donated one of its ambulances to the Orange County Sheriff’s SWAT team. Scott Woebse, Mobile Life Support Services President and CEO, presented the vehicle to Sheriff Carl E. DuBois on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at the Orange County Sheriff’s Office in Goshen, N.Y.
“We are thankful to have great partners like Mobile Life,” said Sheriff Dubois. “This ambulance will provide our crisis communication team with a dedicated vehicle, allowing them to better serve and protect our community.”
The Mobile Life ambulance fleet is composed of more than 60 vehicles which are dispersed throughout the Hudson Valley region, including Orange, Dutchess, Rockland, Ulster and Westchester counties. Although the lifespan of an ambulance varies based on the amount of use and the conditions under which it is used, but Mobile Life typically retires its ambulances after five or six years to ensure patient safety.
“We are always happy to donate our ambulances to further another organization’s mission, such as the Orange County Sheriff’s Office,” said Woebse. “The vehicles are well-maintained and can have a much longer lifespan when used for other purposes.”
Mobile Life Support Services has previously donated ambulances to various organizations, both locally and abroad, but this is the first time they have done so with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
