Acadian Ambulance plans to add new vehicles to its fleet.

The company unveiled its first change in ambulance design in more than 30 years. The dodge sprinter is smaller, more fuel efficient, and it saves up to $400 thousand a year.

The sprinter is slimmer than the older ambulances, paramedics said it won't affect patient care. All of the vehicles are stocked with the same medical equipment as the old units.
