VCI EMERGENCY VEHICLE SPECIALISTS IS PROUD TO HAVE DELIVERED THREE 2021 FREIGHTLINER M260 26’ DRY FREIGHT BOX TRUCKS TO THE NJ EMS TASK FORCE THAT WILL SIGNIFICANTLY ENHANCE THE STATEWIDE EMS RESPONSE!
VCI Emergency Vehicle Specialists is proud to have delivered three 2021 Freightliner M260 26’ Dry Freight Box Trucks to the New Jersey EMS Task Force that will be distributed to host agencies throughout the state to significantly enhance the EMS response in New Jersey.
VCI Emergency Vehicle Specialists is proud to have been able to supply these 2021 Freightliner M260 box trucks to the NJ EMS Task Force. Many vendors came together to make this project a reality in an accelerated timeline. While most vendors are unable to meet deadlines due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our supply chain partners rose to the challenge to provide a quality product to our friends at the NJ EMS Task Force. After an extensive nationwide search for a vehicle chassis, we were fortunate to find three identical 2021 Freightliner M260 extended cab chassis at Stoops Freightliner in Fort Wayne, IN. The 26’ custom dry freight boxes and Dhollandia cantilever lift gates were built and installed by US Truck Body in Streator, IL. The conversion department at VCI worked tirelessly to install the Whelen Cenator light bar, handheld 2 siren and light controller, M-Series warning lights and Pioneer dual panel scene lights. And all of this was done in just over 2 months.
VCI Emergency Vehicle Specialists has been in business for over 40 years, and is a proud dealer of Horton Emergency Vehicles, AEV, and Medix Specialty Vehicles. VCI Emergency Vehicle Specialists has sales and service locations in Berlin and South Plainfield, NJ; Holbrook, NY, and Pittston, PA. These four locations service customers in Delaware, New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania, and New York. The NJ EMS Task Force is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that represents more than 200 career and volunteer EMS providers throughout the state, who are trained in various disciplines of emergency medical services to respond to large-scale man-made and natural disasters as well as pre-planned events.
The New Jersey EMS Task Force plays a significant role in the state of New Jersey’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, while also preparing for unseen disasters ahead. The organization was activated in March 2020 at the start of the pandemic. Working side-by-side with local, state, and national health, law enforcement and office of emergency management teams, NJEMSTF members have handled such missions as providing administrative and logistics support at mobile COVID-19 testing sites, deployed Western Shelter tent facilities at 20 hospitals, placed oxygen generators at various facilities, and coordinated the deployment of its medical ambulance bus fleet to transport COVID-19 positive patients from long term care facilities and hospitals. The team also helped coordinate the deployment of out-of-state FEMA ambulance teams. The organization on an ongoing basis assists with coordination of state EMS needs.
