Elysburg Fire Department EMS mails subscription requests


The Daily Item

— ELYSBURG — The Elysburg Fire Department Emergency Medical Services have mailed their 2013 subscription requests throughout Ralpho Township and surrounding municipalities they serve.

The subscription drive flyers are in a newly designed format, which is more cost-effective in comparison to previous years.

Individual memberships are $45 while family memberships are $60. In addition, local businesses may request a customized subscription.

The subscription drive constitutes a significant portion of the company’s yearly income and assists in purchasing the latest life saving emergency equipment as well as off-setting day to day operating expenses. As the cost of equipment, maintenance, and fuel continue to rise, so too does the cost to provide this necessary service. The ambulance service has needed additional revenue over the past year to assure uninterrupted service to the community and depends on and appreciates the community support to continue this vital service.

Elysburg Fire Department Ambulance provides basic and advanced life support services to Ralpho Township and surrounding communities. The company employs professional staff 24 hours a day, seven days a week, out of its East Mill Street location.
