Ambulance Donation

POCATELLO — When it was time to decommission an ambulance from active service, Terrel Tovey said the Bannock County Commission had the option to repurpose and sell the 21-year-old vehicle.

But it was determined the ambulance would be better served as a real-world teaching aid for Pocatello-area high school students preparing for careers as emergency medical technicians.
