Voorhees Township Fire – Horton Ambulance

June 19, 2018 / 228 / News

Author: The Gold Cross Magazine

The EMS Division of the Voorhees Township Fire Department answers a lot of calls – about 5600 a year – with two of their five ambulances on duty 24/7. Care to guess who’s the manufacturer of all five rigs?  “In the past twenty years,” says EMS Supervisor Harry Woods, “We’ve only run Horton ambulances. When we’re in the market for a new rig, we always look at the competition, but the more we look the more it’s clear: nothing else even compares to a Horton. The roominess, the ride, the quality of the workmanship… I could go on. And that’s why the third rig we’re about to put in service will be a Horton too.”

It’s no mystery why. Horton brings decades of experience and innovation to all of their emergency vehicles, to provide EMS squads with features and quality workmanship that the others lack.

For starters, there ’s the unmatched  HOPS (Horton Occupant Protection System) package, which features a system of airbags, seatbelts and progressive foam protection that provide the best in occupant protection. There’s the Intelliplex i4G™ system – the best electrical offering on the market – which provides custom programming capabilities.

There’s the VI-Tech mounting system, which provides a smoother and quieter ride. There’s the Cool-Tech II™ HVAC system,  which can complete a full module cool down in less than nine minutes. And there’s the Horton 360 system, which ensures the driver can see – and the vehicle can be seen – in adverse conditions.

Combine these and hundreds of other features with the outstand- ing sales, service and graphics support provided by VCI Emergency Vehicle Specialists, and you’ll see why squads all over New Jersey are loyal VCI customers.  We’d like you to be one too.  Just give us a call!

EMS WEEK 2018

Posted on May 25, 2018 by Cheryl Souder

After spending this week celebrating Emergency Medical Responders I was able to learn so much about EMS personnel.   I tried to place my feet in the shoes of those who serve our communities in BIGGER ways than we could ever give credit too.  I obviously could not fill these shoes in the slightest way but I was able to take away a better understanding of the type of person it takes to be an Emergency Medical Responder.   In order to work in this line of duty, one must be emotionally, mentally, and physically strong.   Those are just 3 things out of the endless list of attributes one must have in order to do this job.

Can you Imagine?

Can you imagine working a scene where an infant, child, or adult has died?   Can you try to place yourself in those moments and be okay?  Would you be able to work and do what is necessary to provide the utmost care to those who are injured and the families of those who have just lost a loved one?  Can you then imagine only hours later going home to your family and keeping it together?  The burden of the day’s work still fresh on your eyes as you glance upon your family around the dinner table.   Can you imagine yourself working a crash scene with severe life-altering injuries?   Can you imagine the life of the person in front of you literally depends on the choices you make and the lifesaving care you are providing in those very seconds?   The burden and the weight of this job I can imagine would be heavy, like dragging heavy chains across the street as your running up to provide lifesaving aid.   Again your shift ends, you head home, rest your head, and get up and do it all over again.  Day in and day out and sometimes for days on end, from Christmas to Thanksgiving serving the community without an end.   All of this to protect those we love, to serve our community, and save lives.

EMS providers definitely have superhuman qualities, however, they are human’s with real emotions and struggles just like you, just like me.

We must take into account that just because on the outside EMS personnel are able to keep it together to get their jobs done does not mean they do not carry it within them after working traumatic scenes.  EMS providers definitely have superhuman qualities however, they are human’s with real emotions and struggles just like you, just like me.

Please thank an Emergency Medical Responder for every sacrifice that is made to provide lifesaving care to our communities.  EMS providers are crucial to each and every community to provide prehospital lifesaving medical care.  EMS providers are who we personally count on when we are in faced with emergency situations in our lives.   This job is not an easy one and it truly does take an extraordinary person to be an Emergency Medical provider.

Thank you is only a mere sliver of how grateful we truly are for each and every one of you.  We hope you all had a wonderful week celebrating EMS Week 2018.  It was a pleasure to CELEBRATE YOU!!!

United States Secret Service

March 1, 2018 / 218 / News

Throwing it back to the time our Remount Department built vehicles for the United States Secret Service! The USSS was founded in 1865 to protect securities; at that time about half of the United States currency was counterfeited. The personal protection mission of the USSS started in 1894 when they provided protection for President Grover Cleveland. Fast forward to today and the USSS has been tasked with the same principle missions with about 3,200 special agents, 1,300 uniformed officers, and 1,700 support personnel. We could not be more honored that the USSS entrusted us with their projects. We certainly hope to work with the USSS in the future!
