Provincetown just placed a new ambulance in service. Rescue 196 is a 2000 Ford E450 super duty / Lifeline Type III Ambulance. It is white with a red stripe.

Provincetown will be replacing Engine 190, its oldest in service pumper (1973 Ford/Maxim 750/500 Engine 1).  Word is it will be very similar to the new Engine 5.  
PROVINCETOWN REFURBISHES OLD LAFRANCE
 
This 1936 American LaFrance pumper served as PTown's Engine 4 until 1976.  It sat covered with dust and junk until recently when firefighters began refurbishing the old pumper.  Currently it has a nice new paint job and the motor has been sent out to be rebuilt.  We will look forward to seeing this beautiful truck come back to life in the coming months.  Feb 2002.
