ST. PETE BEACH – St. Pete Beach Fire Rescue received their new medic unit and placed it into full service on June 21. The vehicle will be located at St. Pete Beach Fire Station 22, 1950 Pass-A- Grille Way.

Medic 22 will primarily provide advance life support medical care to residents and visitors of St. Pete Beach and the surrounding communities.

The new unit is a 2017 Ford F550 4x4 and will replace a 2001 Freightliner model. It has a custom-built rescue body, built by Hall-mark RTC, based in Ocala.

The vehicle is also equipped with water rescue equipment including marine radios, searchlights, dual swim boards and Water Extrication Team (WET) equipment. The WET Team is a rapidly deployed team of two to four divers using rapid extrication SCUBA equipment. The goal of this specialty equipment is to allow rescuers to don their gear in rapid fashion and enter the water to rescue victims from sub-surface marine environments.
