News from Emergency Medical Services, Emergency Services, Posted on Fri, 01/20/2017 - 11:27am

It is with a heavy heart that we must pass along funeral arrangements and procession information for Walter Reisner.  For those that didn't know Walt, he was the Owner and COO of Trans Am Ambulance Services for over 30 years.  He was integral in the creation of the ALS fly car program for Cattaraugus County and the creator of the entire Trans Am Ambulance Services company which remains a vital part of our EMS system.

Funeral Services for Walt will be held at Spink's Funeral Home on East State Street in Olean with visitation beginning at 10 a.m. and the funeral at 11 a.m. tomorrow, Saturday, January 21, 2017.

Any fire department or EMS agency that would like to participate in the procession must meet at Alcas (also on East State Street) parking lot before 9:45 a.m. tomorrow.  The procession will go from Alcas, to Spink's, and then on a specially laid out route through Olean to end at Bartlett County Club.  

All and anyone is welcomed to attend and pay tribute to a genuinely great man who played such an important role in EMS in and around Cattaraugus County.  Questions can be directed to Chris Baker or to Bob Jones (Deputy 4 Fire Coordinator).
