Volunteers needed to help with ambulance brochure

By Press Release

The North Fork Ambulance Network will meet Aug. 25 through Sept. 2 to assemble the 2016-17 membership brochure. The organization is seeking non-emergency network volunteers to lend a hand.

The NFA Network is a group of people working in non-emergency capacities to support the ambulance service in the North Fork area. They have three different groups, each with a different focus:

1. Behind the scenes -- For those who have time to make phone calls, stuff envelopes or bake cookies; prepare a meal or snack for hungry EMTs; and drivers to travel occasionally to Crawford, Hotchkiss and Paonia to restock brochures or put up posters.

2. Community outreach -- For those willing to work alongside EMS volunteers at public events; helping kids get on and off the "911 Express Kiddie Train," and to communicate through social media.

3. Professional assistance -- This group seeks area professionals with experience in leadership, recruitment, retention, non-profits, or grant writing to provide advice and expertise.

If you would like to make a difference in your community, contact Community Outreach Coordinator Dawnette Simpson at network@northforkambulance.com or call 970-872-4688.
