          2017 Fund Drive

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 5,800 emergency calls, averaging quick response time under seven minutes. 

In addition, because of our crews’ ability to provide life saving services, we qualified for 2017 Mission: Lifeline® EMS Gold Performance Achievement Award.  This award is given by the American Heart Association to recognize those EMS companies that achieve the highest standards in identifying and treating acute cardiac arrests. Notably this is our third such award.

 Donations from the community are critical in helping us purchase the equipment needed to provide these life saving skills. Last year, we were able to purchase two new ambulances, replacing two of older units at a cost of $140,000 each.  We also were able to upgrade our cardiac monitors to a newer and more capable model enabling us to continue our excellent record in cardiac care.  Despite these improvements we still are looking to improve our fleet and equipment again this year. 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.

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.........
