During a ceremony Feb. 4, Howard Snyder, president of Save-A-Heart, offered to PVFC officials a ceremonial 'big check' for the $50,000 the organization has pledged toward the unit's cost.
The new unit is a 2011 Ford F-450 4WD/Lifeline, and was built at the Lifeline plant in Sumner, Iowa. "It replaces the 2003 ford E450 Super Duty/Lifeline that served the company for more than 115,000 miles and nearly eight years," the release states.
Andrea Lavine, PVFC's 1st EMS lieutenant, said the unit is state-of-the art.
"We are extremely appreciative of all who have donated to support this purchase," she said in the news release.
The ceremony was led by Capt. Glenn Resnick—who is now the former captain after serving 16 years. during a ceremony in November.
Also as a result of the meeting, Larry Goldberg is the new company captain, said spokesman Michael Schwartzberg.
Goldberg was 1st truck lieutenant.
The Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company elected its officers last week, and plans to release the full slate of names next week, Schwartzberg said in an email.
