Well some of you may have already heard, some may have not.
Straight from the horse's mouth...Central Old Bridge Emergency Medical Service (formerly Old Bridge Volunteer Emergency Medical Services, aka Green and White) has officially closed ours doors after 70 years of service to the residents of the Township of Old Bridge.
Over the years, your family members, friends, and neighbors have answered the call for those in need, anytime time...day or night. We are grateful for those who have dedicated their time and energy to the organization and to our community, and to the community in general, THANK YOU for all your support over our 70 years of operation.
As a charitable organization, our vehicles and equipment must go to another organization. It's is with great pride that I can say that those vehicles and equipment will be staying in town to continue to serve the residents. Our sister agencies have taken over the use of our vehicles to continue the care of those in need.
As someone who has committed 25 years of serve to this town, I can speak for all the members of the Central Old Bridge Emergency Medical Service (Old Bridge Volunteer Emergency Medical Services) and say that it's been honor to serve this wonderful community.
Many of our members have seen the worst of times with responding to the 9-11 attacks in New York City, the New York blackout, numerous outbreaks of diseases, Covid pandemic, and much more. We have also seen some of the best in people as well...the lives we helped save, the children we helped deliver, and the kindness of strangers.
If you know someone that was a member at any point in time, please feel free to tag the in this post.
Let's show our appreciation to the people that served our community on this wonderful organization.
Once again, THANK YOU ALL FOR THE SUPPORT OVER OUR 70 YEAR HISTORY!
