Community Education Service Programs

McCormick Special Programs Division

The McCormick Special Programs Division is comprised of committed McCormick employee volunteers who provide a centralized and focused effort in organizing and operating community outreach/service details. Details may include local career days, ambulance presentations, sidewalk CPR, health education workshops, disaster preparedness, food drives, and active kinetic activities promoting exercise in motion. The purpose of the Special Programs Division is to go above and beyond emergency medical services in providing valuable resources and opportunities that empower and meet critical needs of the community.

 

The Special Programs Division moves to demonstrate and honor McCormick Ambulances’ commitment to “Answering the call, meeting the need”, even before 9-1-1 is dialed. As a result, we will do our part in building a new community that is inspired, empowered, and prepared to create a brighter future through improved health and safety. By targeting youth, the Special Programs Division will educate future generations on simple health practices that may save the life of a family member.
