Ambulance donated to Rocky Point
In collaboration with the city of Tempe, Southwest Ambulance has donated an ambulance to Rocky Point, Mexico.
The ceremony took place Jan. 5 at Tempe City Hall, featuring appearances by Tempe Councilman Ben Arredondo, the mayor of Rocky Point and Barry Landon, president of Southwest Ambulance. "When Councilman Arredondo asked us about donating an ambulance to Rocky Point we agreed it was a great idea," said Landon.
"This ambulance will make a significant impact on the medical care Rocky Point residents and visitors receive."
"With Rocky Point being such a popular destination for ASU students and the greater community, this donation will help save lives while at the same time assisting Tempe in building stronger relationships with this important resort community," said Arredondo.
This is the first ambulance Southwest Ambulance has donated to Rocky Point, but not it's first involvement with the community. Southwest conducts free, yearly CPR training to hotel and restaurant workers in Rocky Point the week before Arizona college students descend on the City for Spring Break.
Southwest has donated ambulances in the past to Guaymas, Mexico and the City of Caraz, Peru.
