Lakeside Fire District Places New Ambulance in Service

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Firefighters at Lakeside Fire Station 3 (Lake Jennings/Johnstown) have placed a brand-new Advanced Life Support ambulance in service today. The new Medic 3 is a Braun Northwest Type III unit on a GMC G-4500 chassis. This new rig replaces another Braun Northwest ambulance that will be placed in reserve status. Medic 3 is one of two ambulances staffed round-the-clock by Lakeside Firefighter/Paramedics. In the last calendar year, Medic 3 responded to over 2500 calls for service.

The Lakeside Fire District is very proud of its 35 year relationship with the County of San Diego and the area’s CSA-69 EMS District. With our partner, Santee FD, CSA-69 is the longest provider of Fire Service-Based Paramedic services in San Diego County.
