Johnsburg EMS needs volunteers

To the News Enterprise:

Johnsburg Emergency Squad has two new ambulances, the latest medical equipment, and experienced, professional caregivers, but without drivers we can’t operate. All we ask for is 12 hours a month. The emergency squad will train you to use the radio, use the lights and siren, where to find equipment when the medics need it, and how to administer CPR.

Do you work the next day? Then we will schedule you for shifts that don’t go past midnight. Retired? We love people who can help in the day, or late at night so the younger folks can get to work on time. Volunteer from home or come hang out at the squad building. Be a part of the team.

The simple act of driving someone to the hospital, helping your neighbor when they need it most, is one of the greatest gifts you can give. It feels good too. Call the squad building at 251-2244, or stop by in the day, at the corner of Route 8 and Peaceful Valley.
