Medic Ambulance deserves spotlight, too

By From page A8 | January 14, 2013

On Dec. 30, 2012, the Daily Republic published a special keepsake section “celebrating the longevity of local businesses.” I enjoyed the section very much as it provided interesting and personal stories about our local businesses.

I also noted that there were a few misses in the edition, one of the most important being Medic Ambulance Service, which has served our community for more than 34 years.

Medic started in 1979 when Rudy Manfredi purchased Berton Ambulance of Vallejo. It has been the contract 911 provider for Solano County since 2000. Medic is one of a select group of ambulance companies in Northern California that have attained national accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulances. Medic employs approximately 221 individuals, including EMTs, paramedics, dispatchers and nurses.

More than just providing life-saving services, Medic is active in the community – providing leadership and support in the annual EMS week, which recognizes EMS providers in the county; serving as the major sponsor for the annual Turkey Trot charity run on Thanksgiving Day; providing public education in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and first aid; and actively participating in other charitable endeavors throughout the county. President and CEO Rudy Manfredi served as chairman of the Vallejo Chamber of Commerce last year and is active in many area groups and committees, as are other members of the management team.

Medic deserves to be recognized, not just because of its longevity, but because it is a critical member of this county’s emergency first-response team.

    My beloved husband died on Jan 23, 2012. When Medic arrived they ushered me out of the room and proceeded with my husband. Not only were they fast and professional, they were kind. When they told me the bad news they were so kind I felt like I was talking to my parents. Three times they came to me and expressed their condolences. One young man in particular stays in my mind a year later. So, I will give them recognition for their professionalism and most importantly their kindness on one of the worst nights of my life.
