Good­will am­bu­lance fund drive un­der­way

Record Observer - - Obituaries -

CENTREVILLE — Good­will Fire Com­pany’s EMS Di­vi­sion is seek­ing the pub­lic’s sup­port for its am­bu­lance fund drive. Funds col­lected go to help keep two am­bu­lances main­tained, stocked and ready to han­dle med­i­cal emer­gen­cies as needed.

Last year, the de­part­ment ran 1,310 am­bu­lance calls — av­er­ag­ing over three calls a day.

Good­will has hired per­son­nel to staff the am­bu­lances seven days a week, 17 hours a day from 7 a.m. to mid­night. The other hours are cov­ered by ded­i­cated vol­un­teers.

By do­nat­ing at least $50 to the am­bu­lance drive, a per­son be­comes an am­bu­lance fund mem­ber and will not be billed any amount over what their in­sur­ance com­pany pays. The am­bu­lance fund year runs from July 1, 2016, to July 1, 2017. The dis­count only ap­plies to Good­will am­bu­lances, not coun­ty­owned am­bu­lances.

As al­ways, new vol­un­teers are wel­come. Any­one in­ter­ested in vol­un­teer­ing can call 410758-1422. Some­one will be in touch.
