Oklahoma Fire Stations Use Vending Machines To Save Money On Medical Expenses

Aug. 26, 2015

Vending machines are being used to help several Oklahoma fire stations save money on medical supplies. NewsOn6 reports that five Tulsa, OK, fire stations will install vending machines that are expected to save the department between 30 and 40 percent on medical expenses due to the ability to electronically track supplies.

The new machines will allow firefighters to enter a number and choose from a variety of supplies such as medical cables and Band-Aids.

The vending machines, which cost around $72,000, will be delivered to the stations in the next few weeks, the source reports.
