US spent millions of dollars on ambulance for Biden's inauguration

Because of fears of mass protests on the day of the inauguration of US President-elect Joe Biden, the American authorities spent $ 10 million on ambulances and special equipment. TMZ writes about this with reference to data from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Ambulances with personnel are allegedly already arriving in Washington. FEMA has partnered with American Medical Response to provide emergency equipment. The agreement was allegedly signed on January 15 and will be in effect until January 25.

Earlier in January, it was reported that the FBI will check all 25,000 National Guard fighters who will guard Washington during Biden's inauguration. The check is due to fears by the authorities that some of those tasked with protecting the American capital over the next few days before the celebrations may themselves pose a threat to the future president and other high-ranking participants in the event.

On January 7, the US Congress approved the victory of Democrat Joe Biden in the presidential election. This was preceded by riots and the storming of the Capitol by supporters of the incumbent Republican President Donald Trump, during which five people died. Biden's inauguration is scheduled for January 20.
