Educate Your Community

Rising costs, lack of funding, declining government funding and a decreasing volunteer pool – these are just a few of the problems being faced by volunteer ambulance services across the country that are making it increasingly difficult to deliver timely and low-cost emergency ambulance services.

There are many misconceptions about rural ambulance services, and in many cases, your community members do not understand how your service is being delivered and the time and commitment required by volunteers like yourself to keep your service afloat.

We have found that once your community members know the facts, they are much more understanding of your ambulance service and the challenges you face in providing a quality service.

The following short articles can be used to help educate your community members about the issues that volunteer ambulance services face today and what it will take to keep an ambulance service available to them in the years ahead. Please consider posting these articles in your local and school newspapers or anywhere in your community where people congregate such as churches, gas stations, post office, American Legion, VFW, banks, Boy and Girl Scout meetings, 4-H, County Extension offices, city and county offices, fire and rescue stations, especially during fundraisers, physician offices, veterinarian offices, store bulletin boards and daycare providers.
