Cumberland Goodwill is now at the Expert level of recognition from the PA EMS for Children's voluntary recognition program.
Cumberland Goodwill is now at the Expert level of recognition from the PA EMS for Children’s voluntary recognition program.
Cumberland Goodwill has been upgraded to “Expert” level recognition as part of the EMS for Children Voluntary Recognition program. We are the first in the county and one of only a handful in the region to achieve these standards (the highest level of recognition there is.)

This marks the second year now Cumberland Goodwill has met these high standards designed to protect and provide better care for our communities children. All providers at Cumberland Goodwill go through training in child abuse recognition, have a complete Childline and background check performed, and complete annual continuing education on pediatric topics. One of the new services we are now providing are scheduled car safety seat inspections performed at our station- contact our office to arrange an appointment. Last year we were the first in Cumberland county to achieve “Master” level recognition. Expert level is new for 2015 and introduces standards in addition to Master level that must be implemented in order to achieve recognition. Thank you to all our providers for their continuing commitment to doing everything to keep children safe and help them when they are in need by reaching for the highest standard possible in this program.
