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!

Hot off the Presses!
Today, Tri-Community Ambulance received an email from Unyts to summarize the 2016-2017 Holiday Heroes Campaign that just recently ended.
This campaign included support from many local organizations (Fire, Police and EMS). Tri-Community was a proud participant of this event by hosting a Blood Drive, Food Drive and Toy Drive on December 3, 2016. The blood drive supported Unyts.
In all, Unyts reports for the entire campaign the following results:
--Over 500 people presented to donate
--A total of 458 donations were made
--Over 1,300 lives saved in Western New York!
If that wasn't impressive enough, 23 individuals registered to become organ and tissue donors by signing the Donate Life Registry!
TRI-COMMUNITY THANKS EVERYONE FOR DONATING TO OUR EVENT, AND TRI-COMMUNITY IS TRULY PROUD TO HAVE BEEN PART OF THIS EVENT AND PART OF THESE REGIONAL RESULTS!
