During the week of May 20, a follow-up letter seeking donations to the Chatham Emergency Squad (CES) will be sent to more than 6,000 Chatham residents, businesses, religious and community organizations. Letters will not be sent to individuals, businesses, and organizations who have lent their support with the first mailing, issued in January 2018.

The Chatham Emergency Squad is an all-volunteer organization funded almost exclusively by donations; they provide emergency medical assistance and transport to Chatham Borough and Chatham Township residents and visitors. The letter shares the CES story, which is one of volunteerism and a dedication to serving residents in their time of need. The campaign letter explains that CES is staffed 24 hours a day, 7  days a week, 365 days per year by 68 trained EMTs who sacrifice days, nights, weekends and family time to serve their community.

The second mailing of the CES fundraising efforts coincides with the 44th annual “EMS Week” (May 20-26, 2018) – a national week of events that recognizes and celebrates EMS practitioners and the important work they do in our nation’s communities.

Throughout the Township and Borough of Chatham, residents can expect to see lawn signs and banners celebrating EMS personnel all around town. “EMS Week is a great time to pause and reflect on the service that hundreds of thousands of EMTs provide to communities, nationwide” said Tim Brown, President of The Chatham Emergency Squad. “We are extremely fortunate in Chatham to have a strong, dedicated membership base combined with a town whose residents and businesses consistently lend their financial and emotional support to the services we provide.”

CES never charges for its services and raises 90 percent of its funding through this campaign; in 2017 they responded to nearly 1,100 emergency calls and provided free training in CPR to nearly 400 residents, teachers, coaches and emergency personnel in 2017.
