The Caborca Sister City Committee received an unexpected notification earlier this week from LifeLine that another ambulance was available for donation to Prescott’s sister city in Caborca, Sonora, Mexico.

The ambulance is targeted for delivery to one of Caborca’s rural communities, which is in desperate need of emergency medical care and transportation.

Prescott-Caborca Sister City Committee advisor, and former member of the executive committee of Sister Cities International, Bob Greninger, along with co-pilot Ray Baldwin, will drive the ambulance to Caborca in July.

Transfer of ambulance ownership will take place during a formal ceremony with the mayor and city council members of Caborca.

For more information, or if interested in joining the Prescott-Caborca Sister City Committee, contact secretary Ed Williams at 928-776-0804.

Prescott’s Sister City program is celebrating 46 years in service after being established by former Prescott Mayor Taylor Hicks in 1972.
