The Fanwood Rescue Squad took possession of its new ambulance on Friday, February 23, 2018. The color scheme is a departure from the brown and tan combination that was the standard since 1977, though those elements still exist. The ambulance, which will replace a 17 year old model, is a 2017 Braun Signature Series on a Ford 350 chassis with 6.7 liter diesel engine and 4-wheel drive. All drivers will be trained on the new ambulance before it is put into service. The Squad is grateful to the taxpayers of Fanwood, who financed the $202,875 cost.
