Herrin announces $60K grant for Good Fellowship Ambulance
WEST CHESTER, Aug. 9 -- State Rep. Dianne Herrin announced $60,000 in state grant funding for Good Fellowship Ambulance to assist with purchasing new emergency care equipment.
“The first responders and emergency services personnel at Good Fellowship Ambulance proudly serve the Greater West Chester Area in times of need, and they always rise to the occasion, despite a reimbursement environment that continues to challenge their operations,” Herrin said. “This grant funding will bring up-to-date, lifesaving equipment to GFA so these caring, skilled first responders have the support they need to continue providing high-level care when we need them the most.”
GFA used the funding to offset the costs of a new emergency service responder vehicle and a cardiac monitor for assessing heart activity and treating patients.
Herrin said that she will continue to prioritize the community’s first responders through legislative action and funding support. A photo of Herrin with GFA may be downloaded here.
