To those of you that don't know us, we are both retired volunteers from the Spring Valley Ambulance. We each reflect back with pride during our 25 years of volunteer service. We read with interest the "cutting ties" article in last week’s Spring Valley Tribune. First of all, we want to assure this community that your ambulance service is still intact and will be there for you in times of need. Next, we wish to give you a bit of history regarding the ambulance "association."
