Canadian Firm Donates Ambulances to Dorian-Ravaged Grand Bahama

Two ambulances donated by Canadian manufacturer Demers-Braun-Crestline Group as part of Hurricane Dorian relief and recovery efforts were delivered to the Grand Bahama Health Services on Nov. 29.

The ambulances, which are outfitted with emergency medical equipment and supplies, are the Type III MX164 models that feature best-in-class safety and ergonomics, reduced maintenance and an industry-leading mobility seat.

“These two ambulances were earmarked to go to Grand Bahama to assist with the emergency medical services in Grand Bahama where we would have had the majority of our ambulances there destroyed by water damage,” said Dr. Alvery Hanna, director of National Emergency Medical Services.

In the weeks following Hurricane Dorian, four ambulances donated by Global Medical Response were deployed to Grand Bahama. With these two ambulances, a total of six donated ambulances have been deployed to the island.

“Emergency services in Grand Bahama is fully functional,” Hanna said. “Staff are doing very dedicated work. They are working their eight-hour shifts, responding to emergencies as well as providing transport for the Grand Bahama Health Services.”

Since Hurricane Dorian caused considerable damage to Grand Bahama and Abaco, two islands in the northern Bahamas during the first week of September, the Bahamas has received considerable support from the international community.

The Grand Bahama Port Authority noted in a release: “With grateful hearts, we say THANKS for all of the support Grand Bahama has received during this restoration period.”
