The Need for Highly Skilled Paramedics Never Ends

Fire departments and EMS agencies throughout our region are facing a current and future staffing shortage of paramedics due to a significant number of retirements. Paramedics are stretched to the max.

Join us on May 7-8 for GiveBIG to help raise funds for the training and education of 32 new Medic One paramedics. Your gift will help ensure that our region has the optimal number of paramedics needed to respond to medical emergencies like trauma, cardiac arrest, and stroke, which threaten the lives of thousands each year.


Thanks to the generosity of MaryAnne Arena and MaryAnne Reichle, as well as a group of anonymous donors, all gifts received between now and May 15 will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $20,000!
