Tri-Community Ambulance Service Inc. has been serving the fire districts of Bergholz, Pekin, Sanborn, and St. Johnsburg for over 50 years. We provide advanced life support to the Shawnee Fire Company. We are also on the Niagara County Mutual Aid.
Tri-Community Ambulance Service is a 100% volunteer organization and receives no financial support from the local or state government. We charge a minimal fee for services and use Med Ex Billing, Inc. for billing purposes to pay for equipment, supplies, insurance, and vehicles, etc.
The company was started in 1956 and was originally named the Sanborn-Pekin Ambulance Service. The service was operated out of the Sanborn and Pekin fire hall and averaged 3 calls a month. In 1959 the Bergholz unit began and was ran out of the Bergholz Fire Hall. In 1963 the company name was changed to Tri-Community Ambulance Service, Inc. All calls where dispatched via telephone until 1972 then the Niagara County Sheriffs Department took over.
Tri-Community consolidated the Sanborn/Pekin and Bergholz units into one building located on Ward Road in 1995. In 1998 the company changed its level of care from Basic to Intermediate life support. In 2001 the company upgraded to Paramedic level which is the highest level of care in New York State. Tri-Community is currently the busiest volunteer ambulance company in Niagara County. We average around 1200 calls per year.
