NEW DELIVERY - 2019 Ford E350 Type III Ambulance
Manheim Township Ambulance Association, Lancaster County, PA took delivery of a 2019 Ford E350 Type III Ambulance.
Manheim Township Ambulance Association first started on June 11, 1971. The purpose of this corporation was to conduct, maintain, and operate a community and public ambulance service on a non-profit basis for the aid, assistance, benefit, and relief of the community of Manheim Township and the surrounding areas.
During the first few months, 21 members of the community were trained and became Pa State certified Ambulance Attendants. During this training phase, Manheim Township Ambulance received its first ambulance and it was housed at the Eden Fire Company. On October 8th 1971, the ambulance crew began their weekend coverage.
Some forty (40) years later the Association still believes in the original philosophies. The Manheim Township Ambulance Association serves all of Manheim Township in a BLS capacity and most of the Township is an ALS capacity. In 1999 a satellite station was opened at the Lancaster Airport, which helps provide faster response times to the northern section of Manheim Township. The organization also provides ALS care to some portions of Warwick Township, East Petersburg Boro and Surrounding areas.
The Association remains a non-profit entity that relies both on donations from community residents as well 3rd party billing for services rendered as income to cover costs. Both are complied and completed in house, to reduce costs. The Association solicits approximately 14000 residents and 1100 businesses for donations each year.
