December 21st, 2019 will mark the 1 year anniversary of the in-service date for our new ambulance. This is the first Beltsville owned ambulance since the early 1970's. We would like to thank our community again for your support.

Just to let you know how we have used this state of the art medical unit, here are a few statistics:

First Call - December 10, 2018 A motor vehicle accident in Laurel

Number of calls as of December 31, 2018 (in -service 21 days) - 170 calls

Number of calls as of November 17th, 2019 (in-service 342 days) - 2,909

Daily call average over this time period - 8 calls per day

Total miles traveled as of November 17, 2019 - 25,859 miles

As you can see this is a very busy unit.
