A 56-month-old ambulance has been replaced with a new one that cost $70,000 and is joining three others at an Ivory Street garage.
“This is a more central location that allows us to provide better response to the community,” said Peter Racicot, senior vice president of business development for Fallon Ambulance Service of Quincy, which celebrated its 90th anniversary last year and has been Braintree’s 911 provider since 1998. “When we started in Braintree, we were based at the police station. We moved to Hayward Street two years ago and just opened the Ivory Street facility in December.”
Mayor Joseph Sullivan, Fire Chief James O’Brien and Police Chief Russell Jenkins were among those present when the new ALS (Advanced Lifesaving Support) P-11 ambulance was unveiled the morning of Jan. 9 in front of town hall.
“Fallon is a good operator for us,” Sullivan said.
