The Burbank Fire Department recently took delivery of one of three new Paramedic Rescue Ambulances. The ambulances, which are Ford F-450 Super Duty trucks, were built by Leader Ambulances of South El Monte and are being lettered and prepared for use by the Burbank’s Paramedics. The ‘RA’s’ have state of the art communications, and life saving equipment on board, with plenty of room for the medics in the back. As the picture shows it has dual sirens, air-horns, new strobes and warning lights, which could help in heavy traffic. This past year the Burbank Paramedics alone responded to over 8000 calls for service. These new ambulances will be seen on the streets soon, and always remember when you hear a siren move to the right, it just may be your neighbor their responding to help.
The City of Burbank is kicking off its 100th birthday celebration with the launch of its new Centennial website. Contained within the City’s main website (burbankusa.com), the pages reflect historic, colorful images of Burbank’s iconic landscape including Bob’s Big Boy, Moreland Truck Factory and Lockheed.
“2011 is going to be a terrific celebration of Burbank’s history,” says Gaby Flores, the City’s Centennial Celebration Coordinator. “This new site will be a convenient, central point for all things Centennial.”
The pages within the site include information on the many festive events throughout the year, a link to the 2011 Centennial Calendar, sponsorship details and information on how to obtain Centennial merchandise.
