American Red Cross gets “one of a kind” emergency vehicle


CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – The American Red Cross upgraded their wheels on Tuesday morning. Encova Insurance helped in getting a new emergency response vehicle to assist with disaster relief.

The car is the first of its kind in West Virginia – and a large upgrade from the old emergency vehicle. Encova hopes the car will be a way to give back to the community.

“When people need us most this vehicle will make sure we’re able to get there. It’s more fuel efficient, its got a better wheel base, its got the technology to allow us at the Red Cross to help people” explained Erica Mani, regional CEO of the American Red Cross.
