Ridgefield moving co. owner delivers ventilators from KY to Danbury Hospital

Connecticut State Police Troop A, Danbury Police Officers, and Ridgefield Police Officers provided an escort yesterday of a box truck containing four ventilators from the Connecticut state line, to Danbury Hospital. 

The box truck was driven from Kentucky by a volunteer.   Ezra Zimmerman, owner of Ridgefield-based EZ Moving company, was contacted by a past client, who is an anesthesiologist at the hospital, to see if he could pick up the equipment which ordinarily would have taken 7 to 10 day to ship.  He left Sunday and arrived yesterday morning.  Dozens of people met the caravan outside Danbury Hospital. 

The Newstimes reports that the hospital had purchased 10 used ventilators for about $200,000 each, and 6 were not ready for pick up. He's expected to deliver those on Saturday. Zimmerman was paid for the delivery, but says he charged a discounted price.
