AMBULANCE SERVICE: The Ambulance Service has become a major part of our activities, frequently Anvolving several calls a day. The members who man the ambulance serve without pay, frequently at a sacrifice to their own earnings. They're thoroughly trained in First Aid and know how to c.ope with all types of emergencies. This service can't be measured dollars and cents. The nominal charge made for the use of the ambulance does not begin to cover the cost of the equip- ment and its mainfcenance and upkeep, let alone make any allowance forthe personnel's time, if a charge were made for it.
