Singerly Acquires New Cadillac Ambulance in 1952

Singerly Fire Company was the first department to provide ambulance service to Cecil County, the first responders having started providing emergency medical transport in 1942.  But to keep up with the growth the community experienced after World War II, a  Cadillac ambulance was purchased at a cost nearly $9,000 in 1952.  It had features not found in the old unit, including an inhalator and the capability to carry three passengers.

Here is the Whig coverage of the unit’s arrival in August 1952.
