Your Contribution Makes a Difference

Volunteers in the United States are 63 million strong – and hold up the foundation of our society.  They help their neighbors, serve their communities, and provide their expertise. Your contribution funds our critical services.   

Increasing Cost of Service

The cost of providing these life-saving services has increased significantly.  Population increases have made it a challenge to keep up with the rising number of calls. 

  • In 2017, Abingdon ambulances responded to 4,759 9-1-1 calls. In 2018, we've seen an increase of 13.2% over last year.
  • It costs over $4,000 to stock our ambulances with medications, plus the cost to replace medications after each call.
  • Nearly $500,000 is spent annually by Abingdon to augment volunteer EMS staffing with paid providers.
  • Abingdon serves over 24,000 housing units with an estimated population of over 58,000 people. This does not include visitors and employees who live outside of Abingdon's response area, yet visit and use our services daily.
  • Approximately 1 in 11 residents will use Abingdon's EMS services this year. 

Fuel costs continue to rise.  The technological advances in the equipment we use helps us to save more lives  and property – however, that equipment comes at a cost.  

Volunteerism Today

Our volunteers are some of the best examples of human compassion, sacrifice, and commitment.  For more than half a decade, this passion has allowed communities like Abingdon to have local ambulance services with volunteer labor. Historically, these volunteers have prevented payroll costs to residents and taxpayers.
