Through Mutual Aid with other ambulance corps we recently have helped provide care with Tusten Ambulance, Cochecton Ambulance, Upper Delaware Ambulance, Northern Wayne Ambulance, Pleasant Mount Emergency Services and Honesdale Emergency services. In return, those organizations provide mutual aid for emergencies when more than two ambulances are needed to help sick or injured people. We also work hand-in-hand with the volunteer fire companies at fires, automobile accidents and farm accidents.
