In early August my son was stung multiple times and had an anaphylactic reaction. Vandergrift #2 was the responding service along with two fine paramedics and one of the best drivers I've ever seen. They saved my son's life on site and transported him to AVH in a most rapid and professional manner. We are beyond-words grateful. The Buttacavoli Family
