With the check, the MFD wishes to acknowledge the importance of ambulance service to local fire departments. Mr. Porter pointed out that it is way too common to hear neighboring department ambulances get toned out several times before having the manpower to respond. He noted that MMH ambulance personnel rarely hear a second call for a response, which is extraordinary. “MFD therefore wishes to thank the hospital and its ambulance squad for their invaluable service to the community,” he commented.
