PARAMEDIC FUND

The paramedic fund, which since the inception of the paramedic program, is the vehicle that allows donated funds to be used to upgrade our program with no impact on taxes. The Community’s appreciation of the care given by our personnel, is reflected by continued donations to this fund.

A replacement ambulance was obtained through the utilization of these funds.

The condition of all equipment, is constantly monitored. This fund will continue to be utilized to replace equipment when the need arises.

The generosity of the people who donate, allows our EMS personnel to be provided with the most efficient patient care equipment, with no financial impact on the tax structure.
