Dear EMS Executive Directors, Managers, and Chiefs :
IF YOU HOPE TO RECOVER SOME OF YOUR FINANCIAL LOSSES FROM THIS PANDEMIC YOU NEED TO CONTACT YOUR REPRESENTATIVE AND SENATOR TODAY!
It is obvious from our conversations with Leadership and Members of the General Assembly that THEY HAVE NOT heard about the financial impact to EMS agencies from the COVID-19 pandemic in THEIR communities.
There is a substantial amount of CARES Act funds anticipated to be rolled out to emergency services. Unfortunately, EMS IS NOT BEING HEARD FROM.
The AAP can carry the message but we cannot "carry the water" for your service. We have delivered the message but the answer from Harrisburg is "we haven't heard anything from our EMS agencies". We cannot move legislation without the members of the General Assembly understanding that there is a serious financial impact from this pandemic.
YOU MUST MAKE YOUR FINANCIAL DISTRESS KNOWN TO YOUR LOCAL LEGISLATORS NOW!
YOUR FAILURE TO TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO MAKE A SIMPLE CONTACT MAY BE YOUR DEMISE!
We need your financial data to continue the cumulative losses to show this statewide impact. www.aa-pa.org/covid-19
