Congratulations to Howland Township Fire on their two new emergency vehicles! Don Bloom, Vice President of Penn Care, recently delivered two 2010 Braun Express Ford E-350 Type III ambulance models to the department. For more images, check out the ambulance delivery on our site.
Located at 169 Niles-Cortland Road in Warren, Ohio, the Howland Fire Department was started in 1945 as The Howland Volunteer Fire Department. At that time, they had one fire engine, one tanker truck and one emergency truck. Today, the department consists of Â 25 full-time members, 22 working on a 24 on -48 off schedule. The organization also has 10 to 15 part-time members and 21 to 25 volunteer members. Two of their three stations are manned 24 hours.
These two Braun Express units are the Howland Fire Department’s first set of Braun ambulances. Running over 3,000 calls per year, the department sought out a well built, high performance ambulance model. They chose Braun Industries as the manufacturer for the exceptional quality that goes into every handcrafted ambulance. Under the direction of Chief George Brown, they selected the Braun Express model as it’s known as “…the best little bus in the business.”
The Braun Express has a solid reputation as a workhorse ambulance among private and municipal EMS fleet managers alike. Its benefits include reduced downtime, fewer maintenance costs and increased reliability during ownership. Well designed features such as the EZ Glide door, wide aisle for more working space, external backboard storage, and increased interior cabinets make it the ideal workspace for paramedics and EMTs.
Congratulations again to the Howland Fire Department. We wish you many great years of service to Trumbull County in your new Braun ambulances. Thank you for your business!
