The Buhl Automotive Technology students assited Care Convey by doing all the needed repair work on an ambulance donated by Con Paulos.  This ambulance was sent to Cuidad Madera in Mexico this spring to a small rural community which has primitive emergency services.  CBS’s On The Road was in the Magic Valley this spring to film the preparations of this and other emergency equipment and supplies which will all be sent to Mexico.  The Kimberly Information Technology program is assisting in the process by preparing a video as well.  Click on the links below to see the auto students picking up the ambulance from Con Paulos.
