In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to overlook the vital stories unfolding in our own backyard. Too often, we witness EMS agencies struggling to maintain their operations and ambulance stations facing uncertain futures. This is a scenario all too familiar across Pennsylvania. However, we’re proud to declare that this isn’t our story, and it’s all thanks to YOU!
Thanks to a groundbreaking partnership with the Employment Skills Center, we were able to offer FREE EMT training to aspiring individuals within our community, with no obligation for graduates to join our service. This initiative is a testament to our commitment to community well-being. We’re already grateful to have hired new staff members from this one-of-a-kind job training program, which strengthens our team and reinforces our pledge to be there for you.
Our annual membership drive remains the cornerstone of our funding for the year. While we receive some municipal support, it falls significantly short of covering the escalating costs of delivering emergency medical services to our community. It’s the unwavering support, involvement, and resilience of our community that preserves our identity as a local, nonprofit service, in a landscape where many have been acquired or forced to close. Now, we turn to you once more, imploring you to stand with us by participating in this year’s fund drive. As a token of our appreciation, members still enjoy an exclusive 50% discount on medically necessary ambulance services, a rate that has remained unchanged for over seven years.
Our commitment to being there for you remains unwavering, and you can be the driving force behind this promise. Your donation to our 2024 fund drive ensures that we can continue to be your first line of defense in times of crisis. Should you have any questions or seek further information, our office is always open, ready to assist. To all those who have already contributed to our mission, we extend our heartfelt gratitude.
