We cannot thank you enough for your support with our 2021 annual fund drive. We hoped to leave the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, unfortunately we continued to experience the effects of pandemic into 2021. Our members persevered through these challenges to continue to provide high quality EMS services 24/7/365. In 2021 we were dispatched to a total of 1,584 calls for assistance which was an increase of over 600 dispatches compared to 2020. We are honored to serve our communities and thank you for supporting our mission to provide first rate services to Shamong & Tabernacle Townships.
Last year, your donations allowed us to purchase a Mechanical CPR Device ($12,000). This device provides continuous chest compressions with minimal interruptions, allowing our EMS crew to focus on other crucial life-saving interventions and increasing a patient’s chances of survival.
In addition to this device your tax-deductible donations helped our EMS and rescue team by providing funding for:
Life-saving equipment and gear
Continuous training and safety initiatives
Facilities upkeep, fuels, EMS supplies, and materials
Apparatus insurance, maintenance, and service
As in the past, we thank you for your donation and look forward to assisting you if the need arises.
Sincerely, The Volunteers of the Tabernacle Rescue Squad
