Cataldo Ambulance Service Donates First Aid Bag to Local Youth Football League
Somerville, MA – October 23, 2014– Cataldo/Atlantic Ambulance Service was honored to recently donate a fully-stocked first aid bag to the Salem Youth Football League in Salem, MA. The league had been previously operating with a borrowed first aid bag provided by the attending EMT.
Frank Defranco, who runs the Salem Youth Football League, began to seek an EMT to work the games to address minor injuries and identify more serious injuries requiring ambulance transport. During a Salem High School football game, Frank approached Atlantic Ambulance EMT Michael Prosniewski and asked if he would be interested in the position. As a Salem resident and Salem-based EMT, Michael was more than excited for the opportunity to help out with the local youth sports program. After utilizing his own first aid bag for the coverage, Michael decided to ask for a donation to be made to the Salem league. Atlantic Ambulance eagerly provided a first aid bag that would belong solely to the Salem Youth Football League and be utilized by those providing first aid treatment and coverage.
Frank and the rest of the coaches for the Salem league were extremely appreciative of this donation and provided Atlantic Ambulance Service with a signed football as a show of gratitude. Michael’s pride in both his hometown and employer mirror his character in which he portrays by saying, "They are a good, physical team and deserve to have the best when it comes to sideline equipment. I am happy to work for a company that would so readily respond to the safety needs of the team".
