ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) - It’s a little too big to fit under a tree, but a southern Utah fire department is still thankful for their Christmas gift — a used ambulance.

The St. George Spectrum reports ( ) that the Dixie Region Medical Center donated the 1995 Ford ambulance to the Santa Clara Fire Department, which had applied for a chance to receive the vehicle from the medical center’s community benefit department.

DRMC spokeswoman Terri Draper says the ambulance was mainly used for transporting patients between campuses and hasn’t been used for several years.

Santa Clara City Fire Chief Dan Nelson says the department will use the ambulance for community education and to support firefighters.
