AMBULANCE SERVICE

A community ambulance service
Celebrating 20 years of service

East Pennsboro Emergency Services Website:
www.epems.org

The Board of Directors and staff at East Pennsboro Ambulance Service, Inc would like to thank the residents of East Pennsboro Township who provided support and financial contributions during our 2004 Ambulance Fundraising Drive.

With this support, EP Ambulance Service purchased a 2003 Marque ambulance, costing nearly
$67,000 with an additional $20,000 of medical equipment and supplies for the new ambulance.  The new ambulance was placed in service on March 18, 2004

Thank you for making a difference in your community and thank you for supporting your community ambulance service, and a special thanks to Larry A. Stone, President of the EP Ambulance Service for finding this vehicle for our organization that will help us better serve you.

Pull to the RIGHT for SIRENS and LIGHTS
When an emergency vehicle is approaching your vehicle from behind, do you know what to do?  Don’t be alarmed or panic, just pull you vehicle over as far to the right side of the road as possible and stop.  All emergency vehicle operators are taught in an Emergency Vehicle Operations Course to always pass on your vehicles driver’s side.  Never stop in the middle of the road, pull into the center lane or into oncoming traffic.  Also, when you do pull to the right, please come to a complete stop instead of driving down the berm of the road.  It is difficult to watch you driving on our right as well as watch the oncoming traffic on our left.  Never try to out run or fail to yield to an emergency vehicle.  You could be involved in an accident or be the cause of one.  You never know if we are responding to help one of your loved ones.
Whenever you see an approaching emergency vehicle, remember this simple phrase: PULL TO THE RIGHT FOR SIRENS AND LIGHTS - it will help any emergency vehicle get to the scene and assist whoever is in need.

The Ambulance Service is looking for community oriented residents willing to serve on a volunteer Board of Directors.  The Board meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7:00pm.  Medical or Business background a plus but not necessary.  Please call 732-5552 for more information.

THANK YOU - The East Pennsboro Ambulance Service would like to thank all township residents who have joined the ambulance service this year.  Also, a special thanks to all the members who have so graciously sent a donation along with their membership dues.  You memberships and donations enable us to continue to provide comprehensive pre-hospital services, to purchase state of the art equipment, and to provide ongoing Emergency Medical Service education.
