Live training is crucial to ensure that our responders are prepared to respond to every incident that we are called to. One of the needs we have are for vehicles. Having vehicles allow us to practice everything associated with responding to auto accidents from treating the patient in the vehicle to utilizing the extrication equipment on Hamburg Rescue 7. This time of the year the need for vehicles is much higher because every May we host the Hamburg High School EMT class for an extrication day event. This allows the nearly 100 EMT students to experience hands on training which is invaluable. If you have any questions or have a junk car that you might be willing to donate, please call Ric at 716-491-8684. ... See MoreSee Less
