Introducing Our New Medic 552!
Out with the old and in with the new! The Bloom Township Fire Department is exited to announce our Custom Built 2022 Road Rescue medic is officially in service and ready to serve all those who may need it. This truck was fully funded utilizing A.R.P. funds and comes at no additional loans or debt to the Township.
This truck replaced a 2012 F-450 Braun Remount (the truck on the right) which will now serve as our main reserve medic.
Again we would like to thank our Bloom Township Trustees Smith, Moore and Randles, Bloom Township Fiscal Officer Mattei, and Steve Stricklen from Burgess Ambulance Sales, Inc. and all others involved in the build of this truck. Click the button below to see pictures of the new medic!
