According to, during their monthly meeting on Monday, the Winslow Town Council unanimously voted 7-0 to add a second ambulance.

Winslow Fire Chief Ronnie Rodriguez proposed the need for a second ambulance during the February meeting, stating that there is a need for more emergency transport vehicles in central Maine.

“There is a definite need within the community” for additional emergency transportation Rodriguez told the council. “We have a duty to our citizens for a continuity of service, and the only way to do so is with a second unit.”


Winslow's town only has one ambulance at the moment, and due to the time it takes during the bidding process, it could be months before the second ambulance is added. It could even potentially take as long as 8 months, which would push the purchase into the next fiscal year.
