Congratulations to Ed Mauro with 20,000 hours of volunteer service, Nancy Mauro with 25,000 hours of volunteer service and Peter DiSalvo with 22,000 hours of service. These three individuals along with the rest of our volunteers are an invaluable asset to Gates Volunteer Ambulance. Without you we would not be who we are today. Your dedication and consistent donation of your time over many many years deserves recognition and respect. Thank you for your selfless contribution!
Congratulations to Ed Pink, Gina Schultz, David Noltee, Greg Lundahl, Aidan Hooper, John Centola, Alyssa Tavino, Christopher Fall, John Roman, Jeanette McCorry, Melodie Kolmetz, Michael Waterhouse, Kalliopi Herouvis , Jacob Nulsen and James Perreault. These individuals all provided care to a patient this past year that resulted in ROSC or return of spontaneous circulation. This means that a patient was found to be not breathing and due to the care provided by these individuals, the patient began to breath again and was given the best possible chance of survival. Great job!!! Gates Ambulance is extremely proud of you!

This course is designed to teach you, the public and bystanders, how to make an immense difference in saving people’s lives at a mass casualty event. You are the ones who are going to make the biggest difference in saving lives!
