Aspirus Medford Foundation purchases new EMS radio

Aspirus Medford Foundation donors provided funding to replace and enhance the Emergency Medical Services radio used for transmitting ambulance reports

Aspirus Medford Foundation donors provided funding to replace and enhance the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) radio used for transmitting ambulance reports.

The existing radio, in service since the 1970’s, experienced coverage gaps, drops in signal and communication issues from the field. Cell phones – the back-up in these situations – often had many of the same issues. With over a dozen ambulance services frequently using this radio, it was imperative that a more reliable form of communication be put in place.

With the new radio, EMS can provide the needed services in a more timely and safe manner. Individuals in our local and bordering communities can confidently rely on EMS during what is potentially the scariest time of their lives.
 
If you’d like to contribute to the Aspirus Medford Foundation, all donations, great and small, are graciously accepted to help heal people and promote health.
