#Onthisday in 1956, an “Ambulance Fund Driv” started in Quaker Springs
The Saratogian reported on 1 June 1956 that:
“The kickoff for the Stillwater ambulance fund drive in Quaker Springs will be held at the firehouse Monday at 8 p.m. The service of the Stillwater ambulance is being extended to the Quaker Springs area, and persons in the Quaker Springs Dist. interested in seeing the newly purchased ambulance demonstrated are invited to inspect it Monday night at the firehouse. A house-to-house canvass will be conducted by Mrs. Martin Phillips, chairman; Mrs. Arthur Traver, Mrs. Howard Blodgctt. Mrs. Nileland Wood. Mrs. Edward Kirknatrick and Mrs. Leonard Grinter. Any contributions will be appreciated, the committee says.”
Today, the entire Town of Saratoga was served by the General Schuyler Emergency Squad until 2017 and now it is served by the Wilton Greenfield EMS using what was the General Schuyler Emergency Squad building on Route 29.
