    Default Help.. Looking for stretchers

    Hey guys. sorry, not sure if I can ask this here. I'm from Houston and work with JET EMS at 290 and 610. I'm looking for about 50 pre-owned stryker and ferno stretchers to buy. Please if you have some or any info where I can get some please let me know. If you have just 1 or 50, please contact me. If they are not in Houston I can arrange for them to be shipped down to me... Thanks


    I'm new on these forums btw

    Get yourself a craigslist search program, and put in ambulance cot. I see them all the time on there. For some reason Jonesboro AR has a pile of them.

    I did but I'm not seeing much on craigslist.

    I apologize if I'm over posting on this topic. Please if any one knows about an ems company closing down and selling their stuff or a fire department selling or auctioning off their ferno and stryker powered and non-powered stretchers please let me know. Also if anyone knows anybody who can get me some please contact me so I can buy. Sorry for the multiple posts. TIA

    Sir, you must understand that this is a Fire Service forum. Although Fire and EMS go hand in hand these days, many of our members here have nothing to do with EMS. My advice is to try a EMS forum. there are many just like this. There is a strong possibility no one knows of anyone selling cots. I work in EMS, and can't think of any...

    Thanks

    Dallas at some point had a mountain of old stretchers at their maintenance facility. The phone book shows a Dallas Fire Department - EMS Division telephone number as 214-670-4311. Try them.

    Yeah, i am going to complain to the webteam. Not only does this smack of a profit making venture, I have told you repeatedly about cots available, and you act like they don't exist. Makes one wonder just what you are really up to.

    Aaaaaaaaand today he's temporarily inactive! Well played, Blakers. This whole thing has been very weird. My first suspicion came from the multiple identical threads.

    IDK, I think he may have been gone already - but IDK. Either way, it was probably a computer malfunction than an act of the web team

    The question is.. why are you doing this?

    Doesn't your company have a procurement officer to purchase equipment?

    Look, if you are too damn lazy to do online searches of Craigslist, e-bay, and government surplus sites, or follow the leads of people here then too bad.

    This whole thing stinks to high heaven, why does a PRIVATE FOR PROFIT ambulance service have one of its employees asking for used stretchers on a fire service related website? With an anual income of over $1.5 million and only 10 to 20 employees why can't they afford to buy new?
