In February, the South Milwaukee City Council voted to purchase a new ambulance as part of its regular rotation of vehicles.
That left one vehicle – in this case, a 2001 model with approximately 80,000 of miles on it, the last van-style ambulance in our department — to be “retired.” Typically that means we’d send it to auction, and maybe get $5,000 for it. But Alderwoman Lisa Pieper had a better idea.
She wants to send the ambulance to a country that needs it.
That’s why Lisa is raising funds to reimburse the city for the fair market value of the ambulance, title transferring and any related shipping costs.
Please join me in helping her out on this terrific mission, and put a piece of South Milwaukee in the hands of the less fortunate.
