Three Audrain Ambulance District Employees Honored For Life-Saving Measures Taken During Ambulance Fire

Three Audrain Ambulance District employees received recognition today (Thursday), for their professionalism and patient care after an Audrain Ambulance caught fire on I-70 last month.

Audrain Ambulance District Director Graeme Goodwin presented Certificates of Appreciation to Paramedic Maddie Jensen, Supervisor/Paramedic Keith Reynolds, and EMT Travis Avery at the Audrain Ambulance District headquarters in Mexico this (Thursday) afternoon.

Travis Avery was driving.

Keith Reynolds says he was working on the ambulance when it caught fire on August 22nd while they were transporting a stroke patient to Columbia.

Maddie Jensen was off duty that day on her way back from Columbia with her son in her car when she spotted the ambulance on fire.

The ambulance was a total loss.

A new ambulance has been ordered and is expected to be delivered sometime next year.
