The latest partnership undertaken by VMSC shows the department’s dedication to providing the best EMS possible
As the VMSC continues to work to create the best EMS service possible for the area, they are proud to announce their latest partnership that will enhance service in the Souderton area.
The VMSC and Souderton Community Ambulance Association partnership will see the two agencies co-locate an ambulance in Souderton.
“Ensuring we have adequate EMS coverage and response in every corner of our operational area is at the core of our objectives and mission at VMSC,” said chief Shane Wheeler. “This new collaboration will allow our department to better care for those in need in and around Souderton.”
“And we are proud to be working with some of the best of our fellow EMTs in the SCAA,” he continued. “They share our vision of ensuring the best care for those under our watch.”
The VMSC/SCAA partnership will help the groups better serve their service areas in North Penn and Indian Valley.
The partnership is set to take effect on April 1, as the VMSC ambulance augments SCAA teams.
“The additional ambulance will enhance our capabilities and improve both agencies’ response times,” Wheeler said. “Through collaboration, our communities and region can be strengthened, and I am excited to see tangible benefits from this association.”
And while the services will be able to enhance their capabilities, it also helps insulate the departments from the staffing issues that have plagued emergency response organizations across the U.S.
“It takes more than just everyday thinking to solve issues like the ongoing staffing problems faced by many departments,” Wheeler said. “I believe partnerships like this one show how we can all work together to address common problems to better all of our communities.”
