Help When It's Needed Most
Bethlehem Ambulance Association answers medical-emergency calls 24/7 for the more than 3,600 Bethlehem residents as well as the thousands of visitors who travel to the area to enjoy the Bethlehem Fair, the Connecticut Garlic & Harvest Festival, March Farm, and other local attractions.
One of the few all-volunteer crews in Connecticut, the Association also provides mutual aid to the nearby communities of Morris, Watertown, and Woodbury.
The Association recently was awarded two grants from the Khurshed Bhumgara Fund, a fund of the Northwest Connecticut Community Foundation, in support of new emergency equipment:
- Stryker Power Pro stretcher, a battery-powered hydraulic system that raises and lowers patients with the touch of a button, creating a smoother and safer transport, and
- LUCAS Chest Compression System, a portable device that delivers life-saving, safe and efficient standardized CPR compression to patients in cardiac arrest.
“We strive to provide the highest level of care available to our citizens and visitors,” said Jan Sardo of the Bethlehem Ambulance Association.
"With modern, efficient equipment in use, we can better serve our community.”
