When A Motto Becomes A Rallying Call

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

Every once in a while, a motto becomes a rallying call. For more than 4 years , FUCHS EMS & Medical Transportation and its CEO/EMS CHIEF Kevin Fuchs have heeded the call and lived by the motto: "Our greatest asset is our willingness to serve."

In fact, there seems to be nothing they won't do for their clients and the community when the call comes in for their assistance. Just ask George Martin, retired co-captain of the Super Bowl XXI Champion New York Giants, who founded a Journey for 9/11 in 2007. Headquartered in Parsippany, New Jersey, a Journey for 9/11 is committed to raising awareness and funding healthcare for the nearly 70% of those who rushed to aid in the aftermath of 9/11 and now suffer from debilitating respiratory, blood and other disorders. As Mr. Martin explains, "I called upon family friend Kevin Fuchs for his assistance at the inception of the organization and he responded without hesitation - sharing his EMS knowledge and resources for all of our fundraising events with unprecedented enthusiasm. In addition, FUCHS EMS has provided corporate sponsorship and Kevin has given his time to serve on our Board of Directors. Each and every request I have made, no matter how big or small, has always been met with humility, kindness, positive contribution and selfless participation that never once suggested a request couldn't be accommodated. Kevin's efforts always result in larger-than-life results for all involved. He and his staff at FUCHS EMS are true heroes and MVPs among the many thousands of dedicated EMS. Police and Firefighters who commit and risk their lives day in and day out by putting the well being of others first."

In that spirit of unswerving dedication, FUCHS EMS provides Basic Life Support Ambulances and Invalid Coaches (Wheelchair Vans) on a 24/7 basis for emergency medical "911" requests and non-emergent requests for care and transport to many medical and nursing facilities throughout New Jersey. FUCHS EMS is fully licensed and insured by the State Dept of Health and Senior Services of New Jersey and is among the top private providers of ambulatory services currently operating in the metropolitan area.

The FUCHS team represents a commitment to professionalism and community that goes beyond the call of duty by any measure. As of the writing of this article, that commitment also extends through volunteerism with the Waldwick Ambulance Corps as well as support of Tomorrow's Children Fund's commitment to speeding the healing of children with cancer and serious blood disorders. Is this level of compassion, response, caring and dedication too good to be true? No, but it is expected of and by the members of the FUCHS EMS & Medical Transportation team.

As for where this team will lend a helping hand next, I'm not sure and I won't be surprised. I am, however, sure that they inspire us all to heed the call.
