Well it looks like our 1997 Ford Expedition will likely need replacement soon.

We were fortunate to have this vehicle donated by our colleagues at the Medford Fire Department NY back in 2007 and has served Lindenwood VAC faithfully since.

We are hoping to have another vehicle donated to Lindenwood VAC. We are seeking a 4x4 SUV. Preferably a Tahoe or Suburban Police/Special Service Package, but will consider any make, especially if it is a Police/Special Service Package.

If you know a EMS or Fire department who will be excessing a vehicle that you think Lindenwood VAC could benefit from, or you can help please contact Deputy Chief Buonincontri at deputychief@lvac.net
