August 17, 2023 | Category: Article, Uncategorized

On National Non-Profit Day, we’re proud to stand alongside the incredible non-profit organizations that tirelessly serve our communities. Every day, our dedicated team of first responders and volunteers put compassion into action, providing crucial medical care and support when it’s needed most.

Founded in 1955 and officially a 501(c)(3) organization since 1967, Cetronia Ambulance Corps’ mission has always been to be the leader in emergency medical services, transportation and community health resources in the Lehigh Valley. Cetronia is committed to assisting all, regardless of their ability to pay. We are funded through user fees for service, grants, donations and contributions from individuals and corporations.

In 2022, we dispatched 16,233 units on emergency calls, 8,517 non-emergency calls and 20,691 calls for medical transports. Very honestly, none of this could be done without the support of our community.

Here are just a few examples of how your donation impacts us:

  • $55 Pays for 1 Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED Training Kit
  • $250 Replaces 1 Ambulance Tire Including Installation
  • $500 Purchases 1 iPad for Mobile Patient Care

We’re grateful for the support of our community, donors, and partners who make our mission possible. Together, we’re a force for good, ensuring that quality care reaches those who need it, regardless of their circumstances. Today, and every day, we celebrate the spirit of giving back and making a difference.
