Welcome Back, 26-76

June 17th, 2014Posted by Mark Jeffries

 

In early 2013, GTAS handed the keys of 26-76 over to VCI Ambulance so they can work their magic to make our ambulance like new again. 26-76 was our oldest ambulance at the time and was in need of a refresh.

Fast forward to 2014 and GTAS is happy to welcome back the new 26-76, which has been remounted on an all-new gas powered Ford E-450 chasis and outfitted with; LED emergency warning lights and sirens, shiny new steel diamond plate, and a fresh coat of paint and decals. 26-76 is again a proud new addition to the GTAS fleet and is back in service taking calls in town. Special thanks to the folks at VCI for their hard work and dedication to serve the men and women who serve their communities.

Check out all the hard work that went into bringing 26-76 back to us, as good as new.

Narcan Training

May 30th, 2014Posted by Mark Jeffries

 

Under a waiver signed by New Jersey State Health Commissioner Mary O'Dowd, BLS agencies in New Jersey are now able to carry and administer a lifesaving medication known as Narcan. After completing required training, agencies such as The Galloway Township Ambulance Squad are now able to reverse the deadly effects of such drugs as heroine or morphine. GTAS is proud to announce that we're officially the first ambulance squad in the State of New Jersey to be able to carry and administer this medication to continue to provide quality emergency medical services to the residents and visitors of Galloway Township and surrounding communities.

We would like to extend our thanks to Cooper University Hospital for supporting our agency in this process.
