First Responders Are In Need Of Your Help
(Shopping News Photo by Donald Reese)
With the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks in our country, we are reminded of many things, and one of those things is how important our emergency responders are to our everyday life. The Ephrata Community Ambulance Association (ECAA) is one of those dedicated groups of first responders, and they are actively searching for volunteers to join their team and make a difference in the local community.
ECAA utilizes willing volunteers to staff ambulances weekends and nights from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. as they are available. Volunteerism in general is declining in recent years. EMS takes a hard hit due in part to rising training costs, more time required for initial training and the 24 continuing education hours required every three years to recertify in Pennsylvania.
