North Fort Worth & Murphy Facilities Welcome the Monster Truck

The First Choice Emergency Room Whambulance

First Choice Emergency Room, the leading freestanding emergency room system in the United States, is introducing their branded Monster Truck, The First Choice ER Whambulance, to the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex with events at the Murphy and North Fort Worth facilities during the month of October. As an innovator in health care, First Choice Emergency Room is hosting these community events in DFW to remind local communities of First Choice ER as an alternative option should a medical emergency arise.

The First Choice ER Whambulance will park outside the Murphy facility on October 20, 2012 from noon-4pm. The following Saturday, October, 27 the Whambulance will be outside the North Fort Worth facility from noon-4pm. Attendees can take photos with the vehicle and sign up to win a remote control mini-Whambulance. The Whambulance is complete with 66 inch tires and the converted 2005 Chevrolet Kodiak Heavy Duty Ambulance is now 14 feet tall, 13 feet wide and 25 feet long.

First Choice Emergency Room’s most frequent patients are males 21 and under, so the monster truck is an interactive and relevant opportunity to engage with this key group along with the larger community.

“The Whambulance gives us a unique opportunity to engage the local community at our facilities in a fun-filled atmosphere,” said Executive Medical Director, Dr. Mike Muzzarelli. “First Choice Emergency Room provides patients with almost immediate access to board-certified emergency physicians for treatment.”

On-air personalities from 99.5 The Wolf, one of Dallas-Fort Worth’s leading country stations, will also be in attendance at both events. In collaboration with 99.5 The Wolf, guests can enter to win State Fair tickets at the Murphy event and tickets to see Jason Aldean at Billy Bob’s Texas at the North Fort Worth event.

First Choice ER physicians are board-certified and all registered nurses are emergency trained. Facilities are equipped with state of the art diagnostic technology, including CT scanners, ultrasound machines and digital x-rays, and on-site COLA & CLIA accredited laboratories to handle emergency needs on the spot.

All First Choice Emergency Room facilities are open 24 hours a day, seven days per week. For more information about First Choice Emergency Room or the Whambulance, please visit or call 866.99FIRST (34778).
