Grant to help clear the air around Indiana hospital ambulance bays

April 15, 2014

Hospitals in Dyer, Hammond and Crown Point, Ind., will share a $52,500 grant to help reduce ambulance emissions outside of their emergency departments, according to an article on The Times website.

The funds will be used to purchase seven Medidok Idle Reduction Kiosks that plug into ambulances and keep vital systems operating while the ambulance is parked without running the engine. Running the engine while the vehicle is parked can emit potentially harmful fumes, the article said.

The funds will be matched by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management Dieselwise program.

The hospitals’ emergency departments combined receive some 21,000 ambulance drop-offs annually. The devices are expected to save 1,700 gallons of fuel during that time, the article said.
