I wanted to pass along my thoughts of what a great job your squad is doing. I am a bit of a scanner head and hear a high percentage of the calls dispatched in Burlington County. Years ago, it seemed like station 119 was a bit down and out. That noted, the responses to the calls I have been hearing recently have become outstanding.
Two other thoughts I have are that you are fortunate to have a mutual aid squad (239) that will back your squad up, but not bully it; and that I hear many young voices on the radio. My squad cannot seem to find young people interested in doing volunteer ambulance work. I don’t know how you have done it, but I applaud you and you group for being an effective all volunteer and free service organization in these difficult times.Keep it up.

The Delanco Emergency Squad is a volunteer organization with dedicated men and women who not only serve the residents of Delanco but also assist the squads in surrounding communities. They are a team who continue to obtain the certifications and educational requirements to keep our town safe and have been there for many people in life threatening situations. We are very proud of our members and hope you continue to support them as well!!
I joined the Delanco EMS when I was 14 as an explorer member, I didn’t know what to do with my life and had finally found something I really loved. Through them I was able to get my EMT cert at age 16 for free and have continued to ride the ambulance ever since. In 7 months I am going to graduate with my BSN and will become a registered nurse. I am so happy I found the Delanco EMS. If you have free time you should check it out to, you never know where it can lead you.
This is a really fun place to volunteer! The people and the community are lovely! The people in charge are great at leading their team members in helping their community. Thanks everyone at Delanco EMS for making this a great place to volunteer.
Since joining the Delanco Emergency Squad, I have made new friends, saved a life or two, and had fun along the way. If you are a teen, adult, or senior interested in occupying your time, Delanco EMS is the place to be!
