My Favorite Ambulance: Celebrate our EMS team to win one of these four model ambulances

By Kristy Bleizeffer Mar 9, 2017

Win one of these ambulance models in our My Favorite Ambulance giveaway. Details below.

So, we're pretty proud of our ambulance fleet.

Our 10 buses race to emergencies across Natrona County, each traveling up to 10,000 hard-run miles per year. They are mobile emergency rooms, delivering a team of medical experts trained to save your life or offer comfort during a stressful time.

And they look good doing it.

Emblazoned with Wyoming’s iconic wildlife, our ambulances garner attention wherever they go – and even where they don’t. This Belgian YouTuber, for example, might be their biggest fan.

Since 2015, Natrona County students pick the animals to go on our new ambulances, and we have Colten Sheets to thank for the cutthroat trout ambulance and Aspen Scherck for the black-footed ferret.

We’re even more proud of the expert team of paramedics and EMTs who man our ambulances, providing some of the best heart attack and other care in the region – all before patients even make it to the hospital.

For more than a year, we’ve been looking for a manufacturer to turn our ambulances into matchbook-sized models. We found the Busch model company in Germany, who recreated our ambulance fleet at 1:87 scale. The first four models – Bighorn sheep, grizzly bear, cutthroat trout and pronghorn – will be available in our Cottage Gift shop beginning in April. Other models will be available later this year.

But we hope you don’t have to wait to get one. We’re giving away four model ambulances during our My Favorite Ambulance contest. To enter, all you have to do is go to our Facebook page and celebrate our amazing EMS team with the hashtag #MyFavoriteAmbulance. There are several ways to post your entry:

  • Take a photo of a WMC ambulance out and about town. (Do not post photos of patients our paramedics are treating, or photos of houses or neighborhoods that could identify particular patients. Please respect the privacy of the patients our team is trying to help.)
  • Tell us which is your favorite ambulance and why.
  • Kids, draw us a picture of your favorite ambulance and have your parents post it to our Facebook page.
  • Or, tell us about a time a WMC paramedic or EMT helped you during an emergency.

Post these entries to our Facebook page, and don’t forget the #MyFavoriteAmbulance hashtag. We’ll draw four winners from all the entries, and each will win a miniature ambulance.

Contest ends at 5 p.m. March 24.
