The Borrego Springs Fire Protection District has taken delivery of a new 2015 North Star Ambulance. The ambulance purchase was made possible by a generous grant of $180,000 from the Alphonse A. Burnand Medical Education Foundation.

The ambulance is built on a 2014 Ford F350 Chassis. It has four wheel drive to assist in gaining access to patients who are in difficult locations. The engine is a 6.7 liter Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel. This motor provides the torque needed to climb the Montezuma grade while delivering the acceleration needed for emergency response.
