Thompson Reports New Ambulance in Service

Fire Chief Adam Thompson reported to the board of selectmen that the new ambulance, which is leased after being approved at Town Meeting this year, has entered service. Thompson confirmed that the new ambulance will go out on every single call even if Stewart’s Ambulance Service is on scene. Tuftonboro has a contract with Stewart’s to provide emergency coverage.

The new ambulance will be on scene as backup but will not transport patients unless a Stewart’s ambulance is unable to transport. The fire department is filling out paperwork in order to be able to charge Medicare for transportation costs (for patients with Medicare).
