The McCandless-Franklin Park Ambulance Authority began over 30 years ago when a group of concerned citizens recognized the need for a system of care for victims of sudden and serious illness or injury. Training was obtained and the ambulance service began with two used ambulances.

The authority has grown just as the community has. They now have five ambulances, three wheelchair vans and two base stations. There are now approximately 30 skilled and dedicated emergency medical technicians and paramedics, both paid and volunteer. Ready to provide advanced life support assistance whenever and wherever it is needed, this dedicated staff is available 24 hours a day, sevens days a week.

The Ambulance Authority would like to take this opportunity to thank all the residents for their continued support over the past 30+ years. They look forward to the coming years with pride in their service and they anticipate providing the same highly specialized care to the seriously ill or injured in our community.
