The Colchester Hayward Volunteer Fire Department is pleased to announce the newest addition to their emergency response fleet. Greenwood Emergency Vehicles of North Attleboro, MA delivered a new 2007 International Chassis Horton Ambulance on January 4,  2007. The purchase price of this ambulance was (per town referendum)$160,000 plus the trade-in of a 1997 Road Rescue Ambulance. During the week following many FD members spent countless hours preparing the new ambulance for service. After inspection by CT DPH and DMV, the new ambulance was placed into service on January 11, 2007.

In 2006, The CHFD responded to over 1000 calls involving requests fore emergency medical service. With the current growth rate of the Town of Colchester, it is expected that the demand for emergency services will also increase proportionately. The ambulance that was replaced incurred almost 200,000 miles of service falling in-line with the ten-year life span of the replacement cycle. It is expected that our 2nd due 2000 Road Rescue ambulance will be due for replacement in 2010.
