Century Tel Helps Improve Communications in Mountain Area

The Friends of Mountain Ambulance (FOMAS) would like to thank Century Tel for a generous contribution of $1,000.  FOMAS is currently raising funds to replace many of Mountain Ambulance Service's radios, many of which were purchased in the 1980's and are outdated.  FOMAS  Secretary/Treasurer Cyndi Rzepka said, "It's good to see a company like Century Tel recognize the efforts of our ambulance service, and give so generously to help maintain the quality of service.  We're very grateful to them."





FOMAS Drive Thru Fish Fry - A Mountain Ambulance Original

The Drive-Thru Fish Fry helps FOMAS support Mountain Ambulance Service.  Using proceeds from earlier Fish Fry's, FOMAS recently purchased some new extrication equipment.  The new Res-Q-Jacks and Auto-Cribs will help stabilize vehicles involved in accidents.  These new tools will make extrication faster and safer for patients and rescue technicians.
