CHRISTIANSBURG (WSLS 10) - The town of Christiansburg has made it easier for residents to identify its rescue squad ambulances during a call.

The rescue squad just added its second blue and gold ambulance to the fleet. The color scheme started as a pilot program in 2015 after the town designed its blue and gold seal.

Christiansburg Rescue's new ambulance, Medic 93, has arrived and is expected to be in service in the new year! What do you think of our new look?

Squad leaders said it is important for people in need to know that Christiansburg is coming to help them, and that it is also a way to differentiate themselves during mutual aid calls.

The new color scheme did not add any extra costs to the new ambulances.
