Before the establishment of Citizen's Ambulance Service, ambulances were run by funeral homes and staff. These vehicles were used by Robinson-Lytle Funeral Home to transport the sick and injured to the hospital. Robinson-Lytle donated their ambulance to help Citizen's Ambulance start their business in the early 1960's.
