As a longtime Springettsbury Township resident I have come to recognize the skill and dedication of the township EMS providers. As an emergency physician with over 25 years of providing emergency department care at Memorial Hospital, I have witnessed first hand the diligent and compassionate care that Springettsbury EMS provides to ill and injured patients in their time of need, day in and day out.
The future quality of our EMS system is potentially in jeopardy as the current township board is planning to contract EMS services to an outside provider. Kathleen Phan and Larry Crumling are committed to putting the necessary resources into improving the quality service that Springettsbury EMS currently delivers, rather than outsourcing it.
Your vote for Phan and Crumling on Nov. 5 will assure that when you dial 911 you continue to receive high-quality pre-hospital care from the experienced dedicated providers currently staffing Springettsbury EMS.
