We pride ourselves with a long history of volunteer and career staff working together. Crews are comprised of volunteers and career staff who are professional, well trained and responsive. All EMT’s and paramedics are certified by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Paramedics and EMTs at VMSC are trained to meet the needs of patients with heart attacks, strokes and seizures. They respond daily to nursing homes, elementary schools, restaurants and stores, as well as the Schuylkill Expressway. They have the skills to help patients who are not breathing, who are bleeding or have a broken limb. The combined years of experience of the career and volunteer staff make them ready to respond to any emergency, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Every month, Narberth hosts a training event. In 2014, over 75 hours of continuing education were offered. Some classes are open to all care providers, while others are specifically targeted towards Basic Life Support (EMT’s) or Advanced Life Support (Paramedics).
