The Flatlands Volunteer Ambulance Corps proudly unveiled the latest jewel in its cache of emergency rescue vehicles %u2013 plus hailed the memories of two dearly departed %u2013 by ceremoniously dedicating a brand new ambulance at its operating base.
Paramedics joined Assemblymembers Alan Maisel and Helene Weinstein, and Councilmember Lew Fidler who helped fund the van, at the outfit’s Mill Basin office, 4623 Avenue N, where they also dedicated the newly-remodeled exterior in tribute to former Captains Jay Gottlieb and Robert Stonehill.
Stonehill was a founding member of the 34-year-old organization, which serves the south-eastern part of Brooklyn.
The ambulance, the third in FVAC’s fleet, was christened the old fashioned way %u2013 with a bottle of bubbly.
