to Tivoli Fire Department
Donation made after fire damages station, engine and ambulance
NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. (July 22, 2019) — Mobile Life Support Services recently donated one of its ambulances to the Tivoli Fire Department. The Dutchess County volunteer emergency service provider’s headquarters was damaged in a fire earlier this month, along with a fire engine, an ambulance and various supplies and equipment that are vital to serving their community. Scott Woebse, Mobile Life Support Services President and CEO, presented the vehicle, complete with stretcher and stair chair, to Fire Chief Marc Hildenbrand, Rescue Captain Cheryl Hilbrandt and additional members of the Tivoli Fire Department on Tuesday, July 16, 2019, at The Tivoli Firehouse, located at 2 Tivoli Commons, Tivoli, N.Y.
“As they reel from last week’s devastating fire, the Tivoli Fire Department’s need for support from its community is clear. This is a time for our local emergency services agencies to come together to assist our fellow providers. We hope the donation of one of our ambulances helps Tivoli recover during this challenging time and allows them the ability to more quickly get back to providing the emergency medical services essential to their community,” said Woebse.
Local EMS agencies and companies will be covering any calls within the Tivoli Fire District until they are back on their feet. Other neighboring organizations and community leaders have also offered assistance and support to the Tivoli Fire Department, including former TFD member, Dutchess County Executive Marcus Molinaro. The department has publicly expressed their gratitude to several area agencies that came to aid them on the night of the fire and in the following weeks.
The department has created the Tivoli Fire Company Inc Devastation Recovery Fund where community members can make donations. Additionally, donations may be sent to PO Box 486, Tivoli, N.Y. 12583.
Mobile Life Support Services has previously donated ambulances to various organizations, both locally and abroad. Most recently, an ambulance was donated to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office for use by its Crisis Communication team.
