Saving Lives for 73 Years

Happy 73rd Anniversary to the Wellsboro Firemen's Ambulance Association!

 

by Dawn Bilder - November 25, 2015

When you hear an ambulance or fire truck siren, you instantly know two things. The first is someone needs help and the second is that help is on the way. This month marks the 73rd year that the Wellsboro Firemen’s Ambulance Association has given this peace of mind to our community. Peter Lupkowski, president of the association (in charge of the ambulance part of things) and eighty-six-year-old T. Thomas Stager, association historian and gifted storyteller, joined us to talk about the association.

Peter, who has been with the association since 1986, feels most strongly about service to the community. Out of all of his responsibilities, it’s the thing that brings the most meaning to him.

T. Thomas has been with the association for sixty-two years. He doesn’t go on any runs anymore, but he attends all of the monthly meetings and is asked to share his stories and thoughts at every meeting. He is more than an historian and good storyteller, he is the essence of the association’s spirit.

The association serves the Borough of Wellsboro, Charleston, Delmar, and Shippen Townships and has the busiest ambulance service in Tioga County. They have four basic life support ambulances, a well-equipped heavy rescue truck, a squad for difficult access areas, and a boat. Paid staff is on duty eighteen hours a day to help support the volunteers, and their staff is made up of PA Department of Health Certified Emergency Medical Technicians and Emergency Medical Responders.

If you would like to thank the Wellsboro Firemen’s Ambulance Association for their years of service, please send donations to, or stop by, 21 Crafton Street in Wellsboro. Another way to contribute is through membership dollars, which are significantly important to the association. These funds allow the association to update their equipment, offer continuing education, and to provide paid staffing. There are different subscription options and they allow the subscribers the resources of the association without being responsible for co-payment and deductible amounts that are typically charged to cover amounts that are not paid by insurance. Stop by or call the ambulance station at (570) 724-9165 for more details.
