In January 2020, the Bullhead City Fire Department applied for a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) through HUD in Mohave County. We are excited to announce that the $125,000 grant was awarded to our department for the purchase of a new ambulance for response in District 6. The total cost of the ambulance, including equipment, is approximately $180,000.  The procurement and build process started in January 2021; delivery of the new unit for final equipment installation took place in February 2022. A few new highlighted features include a Power-Load Stryker gurney lift, a new electric oxygen tank lift, and 4-Wheel Drive capabilities with a liquid rear suspension. On Monday, March 7, the new unit went into service at fire station #6, located at 2025 Clearwater Drive.

Our department would like to extend our gratitude to District #2 Supervisor Hildy Angius, Mohave County Manager Sam Elters, and the Mohave County Procurement Staff.  Along with the BCFD Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), whose members contributed countless hours helping to obtain necessary information, along with our Assistant Chief of Preparedness and Professional Development, Forrest Taylor.

Fire Chief Patrick Moore stated, “The new ambulance will make a positive impact on our EMS service delivery for the Bullhead City Fire District, and would like to thank all parties involved, including our community, for their continued support.
