2015 Fund Drive - Make an Online Donation

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Southern Berks Regional EMS is a non-profit charitable corporation providing 24 hour emergency medical services to nine  municipalities in Berks County. Last year, we responded  to over 5,400 emergency calls, averaging quick response time of around seven minutes.

In addition because of our crews’ ability to provide life saving services, we qualified for 2015 Mission: Lifeline ® EMS Gold Performance Achievement Award. As 1 of 62 EMS agencies in Pennsylvania, Southern Berks Regional EMS joins 442 other agencies  in the US receiving a Performance Achievement Award.

Donations from the community are critical in helping us purchase the equipment needed to provide these life saving skills. We  are also looking to purchase a new ambulance this year to replace one of our older vehicles, which will cost around $150,000. Ambulances and the medical equipment we use is also are expensive to purchase and maintain. For example, one of our monitors  that enable our crews to quickly identify cardiac arrests costs in excess of $30,000 and we must also pay to keep these monitors  maintained. Our organization continues to rely on your donations to help finance our operations. You can also be assured that 100% of  your donation goes directly into our operations.
