Donate to Tri-Community in 2017!

Posted on February 4, 2017 at 4:25 AM

A lot of people make new years resolutions and quickly abandon them. Tri-Community urges people to make giving back a priority in 2017!

 

Tri-Community is always looking for new recruits to join our proud ranks. Did you know Tri-Community is a 100% volunteer organization and 501(c)(3) charitable organization? If you are looking to donate, and ensure your dollar stays local; why not consider donating to Tri-Community!

 

Tri-Community receives zero taxpayer dollars from any of the towns or jurisdictions we serve. While we charge a nominal fee to ensure we have proper equipment and vehicles at the ready for the next emergency, we are always looking to raise more money to reinvest into you, our neighbors!

 

The cost of everything is going up. Fuel, insurance premiums, electrical and heat costs, EMS equipment and vehicle costs and medication costs. Unfortunately, we do not see price adjustments that lower our cost of operating; we normally and routinely see an increase in the cost of operations year after year. To help with project costs, Tri-Community holds fundraisers each year to help increase these accounts and make our projects a reality. Recent advancements have included our cardiac monitors, new ambulance (unit 330) and patient cot/gurneys; just to name a few.

 

Consider giving today!

Record Breaking Month in January 2017!

Posted on February 1, 2017 at 8:30 AM

Tri-Community would like to thank our members for a very busy and very successful first month of 2017! It is fair to say we just concluded the busiest month in company history!

 

While our incident numbers are still being tallied, it is safe to say we are well above this time last year! Once the data crunchers are done, we will share our results on our company website!

 

Even more impressive is the TOTAL VOLUNTEER HOURS and VOLUNTEER HOUR GROWTH we saw this past month! We ended the month with 3,020.50 VOLUNTEER HOURS served; which is an increase of 58.83% over this time last year. Thanks to our volunteers, we are able to manage the growth in calls received!

 

According to the NVFC, "the number of volunteer firefighters in the United States has declined by about 12% since 1984". Tri-Community is truly blessed and appreciative of our volunteers who continue to serve at impressive levels each year!

Tri-Community currently on pace to grow by 14.75% over last year in calls!

Happy Humpday Facebook followers!

 

Tri-Community is proud to report we handled run #114 earlier today. If we keep up this rate, we will end the year with 1,664 calls (214 above 2016).

 

Why are statistics so vital to an organization? It helps monitor performance and key indicators of your organization. Tri-Community likes to monitor these statistics routinely and make adjustments where needed to ensure our residents are covered in their time of need.

 

How can you help Tri-Community now and in the future? Become a TCAS recruitment advocate and help us spread the word far and wide every chance you get! We are always in the market for new recruits and appreciate the word of mouth and social media shares!

 

Thank you in advance for your support of our company!
