Cayman Heart Fund donates new ambulance to HSA

The Health Services Authority showed off its brand new, state-of-the-art ambulance this morning, even testing out the siren. (spoiler alert: it works)

Wednesday morning, the HSA took the handover for the new Chevrolet G-45 Trauma Hawk from the Cayman Heart Fund, which raised $150,000 in eight months toward the vehicle.
$60,000 of that came from the deputy governor’s 5k challenge.

The HSA said the new wheels are a welcome addition to the fleet, as the EMS service receives more than 5000 calls each year.

“This new vehicle will increase our capacity to respond to the needs of our community, and in turn, improve the service,” said HSA CEO Lizette Yearwood

The ambulance is specially outfitted for cardiac patients, and features a hydraulic stretcher system that helps with lifting patients into the vehicle.
