EmergyCare offers a variety of community outreach programs such as hands-only CPR training, participation in health and safety fairs, career days, school visits with ambulances, wellness activities, blood pressure screenings, and more. If your group is interested in having EmergyCare participate in your event, please contact Lisa Songer by phone at 814-870-1948.
As a proactive community partner, EmergyCare strives to be available when the community needs us. We’re proud to provide ambulance stand-by service for various festivals, events, and sporting activities each year.
You’ll find us at CelebrateErie, the Tall Ships Festival, Liberty Park events, fundraising walks, and hundreds of youth sporting events each year. When a large crowd gathers or potentially dangerous activity is taking place, we feel it is a part of our mission to be on-site and be ready to deliver aid on the spot. When thousands of people converge, the potential for illness and injury increases.
