The town of Malcolm is getting a little safer. The Malcolm Fire Station held an open house Sunday to show off its brand new ambulance.

Before purchasing the ambulance, Malcolm Fire and Rescue relied on ambulances from Lincoln and Raymond.

Nearly 200 people came out to take a look. The open house featured a bouncy house, face–painting, plenty of food and an appearance by Smokey the Bear.

"It'll be a very nice thing for the community to have the ambulance, knowing that it can get there quicker, get patients to the hospital a lot quicker," Joy Plautz said.

"Show the community what we have," Malcolm Fire and Rescue Chief Dale Heidtbrink said. "And the pride in all the other equipment, too, that we have."

The ambulance will serve all of Malcolm and neighboring towns including Raymond if necessary.
