Village Ambulance

This fall a new clinic opened in Brevig Mission. It is a great looking facility with lots of modern equipment. We do not have a doctor on staff, but there are several health aids and a nurse practitioner that can take care of most medical needs.

We also got a new "ambulance" to transport patients to the airport for medevac flights. We do not have any cars or trucks in town and the roads are frequently in poor condition (snow or mud). This, of coarse, means that we would have no use for a regular ambulance, instead we have this trailer. It can pulled with a four wheeler or a snowmobile. It almost never gets used, but it is nice to know that it is available if someone needs it.
Lately Harold and I were at the clinic and I happened to walk by ambulance trailer and I noticed something on the tongue. Like everything sold in America these days it has a warning sticker. This one says "NO PASSENGERS"!

That is too funny! No passengers allowed on your ambulance!

If I could get used to the cold, I think I would like it where you live!
