Hillsborough County intends to recommend the award of a sole source purchase of twelve (12) Ambulances to Halcore Group, Inc. d/b/a Horton Emergency Vehicles in the amount of $3,479,784.00.

The sled testing program must have been conducted on a continuous basis for a period of time no less than ten (10) years. Horton Rescue ambulances have been standardized based on sled testing utilizing the Horton Occupant Protection System (HOPS).

In addition to the inflatable cushion system, the HOPS includes Horton s new progressive resistance headrest at all squad benchs and CPR seating positions. The HOPS is exclusive to Horton emergency vehicles.
