You see ambulances on the road all over the county, every day. But do you know that of the 1,000s of ambulance calls handled each year, over half are staffed with VOLUNTEERS??? That's right, that ambulance that just passed you is very likely to have been paid for through fundraisers and the staff inside are volunteers, completely unpaid for their service!
Today is day 5 of National EMS Week 2013. Emergency Services would like to recognize and thank all those dedicated EMS providers and rescue personnel that serve Cattaraugus County every day, 24/7.
It's impossible to imagine where we would be without the hundreds of hardworking volunteers spending countless hours away from their families to train, practice, and respond to help those in need. THANK YOU will never be enough to truly say how much each and every one of you is appreciated!!!
