We are truly fortunate to welcome three new individuals to our volunteer service....Thomas, Rachel and Zach have all signed on in the last few months.
But we can always use more. Emergency Services all over the county, and particularly small volunteer outfits like ours, are struggling to keep up with the coverage.
At its worst, when you call 911, there's simply no one to help you...like this area of Connecticut, where 26% of their calls went unanswered!
Happily, one way or the other, that hasn't happened to us, but we're not so flush that we can't use more folks to help.
And it doesn't take a huge commitment....as little as a few hours a month. Sign on as a driver and, if you like it and want to do more, we'll provide EMT classes.
The easiest way to get started is to simply ride along with us a couple times. If you don't like it, then no harm, no foul...just walk away with our thanks for taking a look.
But if you DO like it, there's a whole new world just waiting for you.
For your New Years resolution, please consider volunteering with Southern Jasper County Ambulance Service. Its good for you, its good for your community.
We can be reached by simply emailing SJCAS101@gmail.com.
Good luck and I hope to see you soon!
