Detroit receives donation for new ambulance

DETROIT -- The Downtown Detroit Partnership donated $8 million to buy the city new ambulances and police cars.

The city will get 23 new EMS rigs and 100 police cars.

"From my vantage point, with the kind of collaboration that we're seeing from our business community and this administration it's only going to help aid us in helping to fix the city of Detroit," said Mayor Dave Bing.

The motor city has a $327 million budget deficit and has also more than $14 billion in long term debt.
