A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Sept. 30 at the East Allen Township EMS building, 4945 Nor-Bath Blvd., to welcome a brand-new ambulance.
The Greater Bath Area Chamber of Commerce and the ambulance corps coordinated the ceremony.
Corps President Joe Light thanked all of those who attended and expressed gratitude that, with the addition of ambulance 4683, the East Allen EMS will be in a position to better serve the township and surrounding communities.
East Allen Township EMS has been providing emergency medical services since September 1979. Its mission is to provide all patients with the greatest care and service, no matter the type of call. The EMS service relies on a group of dedicated volunteers and paid personnel.
Light noted staff strive to provide excellent care through their professionalism and continuing education.
Michele Morrow, a lifetime township EMS member, noted, “The new ambulance will help us better serve East Allen Township and surrounding communities.”
Her husband, Ken Morrow, is the secretary/treasurer for the ambulance corps.
Also on hand were state Rep. Zach Mako, R-183rd, and Northampton Borough Councilman Ron Glassic. Both expressed congratulations to East Allen EMS and commented on the organization’s selfless vital service to the area.
For a fun twist on a typical ribbon-cutting ceremony, an EMS staff person drove the new ambulance through a blue ribbon held by some of those present.
