Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Southern Berks Regional EMS is a non-profit charitable corporation providing 24 hour emergency medical services to nine  municipalities in Berks County. Last year, we responded  to over 5,400 emergency calls, averaging quick response time of around seven minutes.

In addition because of our crews’ ability to provide life saving services, we qualified for 2015 Mission: Lifeline ® EMS Gold Performance Achievement Award. As 1 of 62 EMS agencies in Pennsylvania, Southern Berks Regional EMS joins 442 other agencies  in the US receiving a Performance Achievement Award.

Donations from the community are critical in helping us purchase the equipment needed to provide these life saving skills. We  are also looking to purchase a new ambulance this year to replace one of our older vehicles, which will cost around $150,000. Ambulances and the medical equipment we use is also are expensive to purchase and maintain. For example, one of our monitors  that enable our crews to quickly identify cardiac arrests costs in excess of $30,000 and we must also pay to keep these monitors  maintained. Our organization continues to rely on your donations to help finance our operations. You can also be assured that 100% of  your donation goes directly into our operations.

2016 Make-A-Wish Convoy

Paramedic Jean Ebersole and EMT Rosene Ringler had the privilege of taking Medic 10 to the Mother's Day Make-A-Wish convoy in Lancaster County. The Make-A-Wish Foundation uses the convoy to raise money to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. The lights, sirens, and air horn were great crowd pleasers!

2016 Misslion Lifeline Gold Award

Reading, Pa, May 13, 2016 - Southern Berks Regional EMS has received the American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline® EMS Gold Award for implementing quality improvement measures for the treatment of patients who experience severe heart attacks.

Every year, more than 250,000 people experience an ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) the most deadly type of heart attack caused by a blockage of blood flow to the heart that requires timely treatment. To prevent death, it’s critical to restore blood flow as quickly as possible, either by mechanically opening the blocked vessel or by providing clot-busting medication.

Unfortunately, a significant number of STEMI patients don't receive this prompt reperfusion therapy, which is critical in restoring blood flow. Mission: Lifeline seeks to save lives by closing the gaps that separate these patients from timely access to appropriate treatments. Mission: Lifeline’s EMS recognition program recognizes emergency medical services for their efforts in improving systems of care and improving the quality of life for these patients. More.........
