Montville Township First Aid Squad

The Montville Township First Aid Squad is seeking funds to implement a new alerting system called eDispatch. This system alerts our members on their cell phone when there is a medical emergency in our town. If funded, this system will allow the volunteers on the Montville First Aid Squad to respond to more calls, decrease our response times, and act as a back-up for our radio network.

                Each year, we answer about 1,500 calls. This program would allow our crews to answer more calls by alerting them to a second medical emergency when they are off-duty. During the day, one ambulance crew is staffed at our building. However, when the duty crew is out on an emergency, a second call might come in. With this new alerting system, volunteers would receive a page on their cell phones, allowing them to drive to the building, staff another ambulance, and respond to the second call.

                eDispatch will also decrease the time it takes us to get to the patient in need by streamlining the response process. Once alerted on the cell phone, volunteers would know to immediately travel to the building to respond to the call. This eliminates any phone calls or communication that needs to take place before they are alerted of a call, which saves valuable time.

                Lastly, this alerting software would act as a back-up for our radio communication. If the radios fail to transmit or receive notification of a call, this dispatching program would still alert members through their cell phones and allow for volunteers to mobilize and respond to a call.

Overall, your contribution will allow the Montville Township First Aid Squad volunteers to implement this extremely useful system, and ultimately, help us help you, the residents of Montville Township. We thank you in advance for your continuing generosity and support.
