Wellsville Emergency Management Coordinator provides demonstration

WELLSVILLE — Wellsville Rescue 1 unfolded like a Transformer Wednesday night, with each new cubbyhole and crevice revealing another way in which the rig is equipped to handle any and every emergency situation.

Wellsville Emergency Management Coordinator Chris Martelle gave a demonstration to Town of Wellsville officials, showing off the many tools aboard the Wellsville Volunteer Ambulance Corps Rescue Squad truck.

The rig seats six emergency first responders. When combined with other Wellsville Volunteer Ambulance Corps assets, such as a trailer with a boat and off-road UTV, local personnel are equipped to handle whatever comes their way.

“It’s quite an asset to the local community,” said Wellsville Town Supervisor Shad Alsworth. “You can pretty much service any rescue in Allegany County.”

Martelle agreed, noting that Rescue 1 benefits more than just Wellsville or Allegany County, and can be deployed throughout a much wider region.

“We’re the biggest heavy rescue in Allegany County. We cover 400 square miles in New York and an additional 150 square miles in Pennsylvania,” Martelle said. “We have a big district.”

“The truck looks awesome,” said Highway Superintendent Dean Arnold, summing up the demonstration.
