The entire State of New York has been placed under a state of emergency by Governor Cuomo. Weather conditions were expected to worsen between Monday into Tuesday nights, with the bulk of the storm hitting on Tuesday. The storm watches and warnings continue on until Wednesday and Thursday before being lifted and the weather advisories ending.
During this event, we saw significant accumulations of snow, with over 14" hitting by Tuesday night in one location in Bergholz. Blowing and drifting snow was also a concern.
Tri-Community volunteers stepped up to the plate and starting early Tuesday morning, our ENTIRE fleet was staffed with volunteer responders to be ready at a moment's notice for an emergency within our community.
Tri-Community would like to thank the volunteers that stepped forward to staff our Unit 1, Unit 2, Unit 3 and MEDIC 5 vehicles during this state-wide emergency weather event.

Tri-Community Ambulance Service is very proud of one of our own featured in a video produced by the Buffalo Bills! Our Western New York hometown team honored not only all first responders, but cited a very specific event that occured during their home opener game. A fan endured a serious medical emergency requiring fast deployment of EMS resources and early CPR! As a result of great team work, the fan personally came back to thank each and every one of the responders in this tribute video!
Tri-Community is VERY proud of our very own, Dan Gross, who is recognized for his life saving skill that day, and is in the video produced by the Buffalo Bills!
Dan joined our ranks as a junior member when he was 14 years old, and has risen through the ranks to the present day AEMT, active member status.
Dan, your extended family here at Tri-Community could not possibly be more proud of you!

Tri-Community volunteers have had a busy weekend!
First, several of our volunteer responders are in Syracuse, NY at the OnCenter for the annual NYS Department of Health EMS Conference ("vital Signs Weekend") to earn CME credits for their EMT and Paramedic certifications. Each year responders must log Continuing Medical Education hours to be used to recertify. A big thank you to those members who gave up this nice fall weekend to spend in lecture halls and conference rooms!
While this was going on, volunteers were on staff at the Niagara Wheatfield versus Jamestown highschool football game at Niagara Wheatfield High School. Our unit 1 and unit 3 were on hand to provide EMS coverage in the event of an injury requiring transport.
Lastly, Tri-Community has received a total of 14 calls since Friday thru Sunday at noon! 3 of these calls were mutual aid to nearby districts (1 City of Niagara Falls call and 2 calls mutual aid to Cambria fire company).
Thank you to our dedicated volunteers!
