We were proud to donate our aging ambulance to the New York State Preparedness Training Center, operated by the NYS Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services. Its mission is to provide first responders and government officials with the best knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to safely and effectively prevent, prepare for and respond to terrorist acts and other manmade and natural disasters.

Member Julia Barone spearheaded a record-breaking blood drive at our Corps on July 26. We thank our entire community for its support of our efforts to reduce the critical blood shortage in our area.

Parades offer a wonderful opportunity to represent our Corps and to build camaraderie among neighboring fire departments and EMS agencies. We are grateful to work alongside so many phenomenal first responders. On July 27th, we marched in Brewster Fire Department’s parade, taking home trophies for Best Ambulance Corps and Best Non-Firematic Color Guard. On July 29th, we marched in the Bedford Fire Department Parade and were awarded with the Best Ambulance trophy. We look forward to attending Putnam Valley Fire Department’s parade in October.

Our Corps responds to approximately 900 emergency medical calls annually, supported entirely by volunteers. We are grateful for the kindness and dedication of our growing membership – and for the ongoing support from our community.
