It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.

Mike's Story 
This adventure to find a safer way to be in the back of a moving ambulance and provide excellent care for my patient started about 11 years ago with an injury (like most things that stimulate change). While working in a Type II van, my partner made some aggressive moves at highway speeds with a sudden stop that tossed me around and I ended up with a few cracked ribs. This mishap has made me look at ways to make it safer in the back of the ambulance without inhibiting our jobs. Whether it be equipment, technology, or just asking why we were doing something, it was all on the table. Fighting tradition, resistance to change, and the always present “well what if” we continue to move forward. Now we are seeing the benefits in safety on the personnel and financial sides.

Ferno Financing

Posted by Ferno on Jun 12, 2017 5:06:39 PM

Together We Can Make It Happen!

It’s your job to protect your crews and save lives. The last thing you should have to worry about is whether or not you have the right piece of equipment to do the job. Ferno Financing Services helps you provide your teams with the latest equipment and technology, with interest rates and payment plans that fit your budget needs.

Ferno Financing Services provides a full range of financing options that can help you meet almost any need, including:
  • Payment plans to help you manage cash flow and conserve capital.
  • Terms from one to five years with access to low interest rates.
  • Finance equipment purchases as low as $5,000.
  • Finance multiple pieces of equipment through one payment.
  • $1 buy-out so you own equipment free-and-clear at the end of term.
  • Customized structures to meet your specific budget requirement


Our Financing Options Include:



Finance lease (Capital lease)
with long-term ownership options. This is similar to a bank loan and is categorized as long-term debt, which can provide tax benefits. At the end of the lease you can purchase the equipment with options from $1 to 10% of the equipment cost.

Operating lease (True lease) helps overcome issues you may have with cash flow and the lease payment amount. It may be considered an "off-balance sheet" liability and contains a provision to purchase the system for market value at the end of the lease.

  • Establish lines of credit to handle multiple delivery schedules.

  • Simple documentation with one investor and an easy credit approval process.
  • You can take an ownership interest in the equipment from the onset of the lease and build equity with each installment payment.
  • Options include a $1 buy-out so you own equipment free-and-clear at the end of term.

The Issue of Seat Belts

Posted by Ferno on Nov 3, 2016 1:52:04 PM

According to the CDC, “Motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death among those aged 1-54 in the U.S.” The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) studied data from Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) and identified several behaviors that have low likelihodd of fatalities including 1) Being in a pickup (compared to a passenger car); 2) Being in a sport utility vehicle (compared to a passenger car); 3) Being in a van (compared to a passenger car); 4) Being age 0-19 (compared to age 20-29); 5)  Being age 70 or older (compared to age 20-29); 6) Being restrained (compared to unrestrained); 7) Being in a multi-vehicle crash (compared to a single vehicle crash).

“Other statistics coming from the CDC, “More than half (range: 53%-59%) of teens (13-19 years) and adults aged 20-44 years who died in crashes in 2014 were unrestrained at the time of the crash.; Young adult drivers and passengers (18-24) have the highest crash-related non-fatal injury rates of all adults; and seat belts dramatically reduce risk of death and serious injury. Among drivers and front-seat passengers, seat belts reduce the risk of death by 45%, and cut the risk of serious injury by 50%.”

Seat belt restraint has long been identified as a lifesaving tool. In an effort to reduce the number of vehicle fatalities, mandatory seat belt laws were passed in all 49 states, led by New York State in 1984. The exception was New Hampshire, which only required that children be restrained. The laws, however, differed in who was affected with some only requiring seat belt use for those traveling in the front seat. Sixteen states designated the infraction to be classified as secondary enforcement, meaning that law enforcement could not stop and ticket a driver for that offense alone.
