Maybe you even had to “move over” to let an ambulance get by?  Have you wondered where they were going in such a hurry?  They very well may have been on their way to help your neighbor or friend.  For fifty-five years, the Emergency Squad has transported Sun City Center residents to hospitals, dialysis appointments, etc.  Not one person has ever received a bill for any of these services.  Who are the people on those ambulances and vans?  They are your neighbors and friends who give freely of their time to help their neighbors in need.  Now, think of what would happen if those same ambulances and people were not there to help.  Keeping ambulances staffed and ready to go is not a given.  The Squad is always looking for those special individuals who are willing to give of their time to help their neighbors.   You don’t have to be a medical professional or have a medical background.  You don’t even have to live in Sun City Center.  The Squad will provide you with all the training you will need.  If working on an ambulance is not for you, there are many more opportunities to serve.  Front Desk, cooks, dispatchers, vehicle maintenance and IT are areas available.   You are invited to drop by at our Open House where you will meet some of the wonderful people who give of their time at the Squad.  They will be more than happy to tell you about what they do and answer any questions you may have.

THE STORY
Comfortably ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a dry spell which has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college—a thriller that Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway smash. Sidney’s plan, devised with his wife’s help, is to offer collaboration to the student for co-credit. Or is it?  DEATHTRAP provides twists and turns of devilish cleverness, and offers hilariously sudden shocks in such abundance that audiences will be spellbound until the very last moment.

Maintaining good brain health begins with a simple screening to establish a baseline score. This score is then utilized annually to determine if a loss is present to trigger a medical visit before valuable memory is lost forever. In addition, a recent study found that treating hearing loss with hearing aids may reduce the incidence of cognitive decline.

Maintaining good brain health begins with a simple screening to establish a baseline score. This score is then utilized annually to determine if a loss is present to trigger a medical visit before valuable memory is lost forever. In addition, a recent study found that treating hearing loss with hearing aids may reduce the incidence of cognitive decline. Make your appointment today to have your memory screened along with your hearing. By appointment only. To schedule, call the Coalition at 813-419-4902 Interested in learning more about Clinical?

This score is then utilized annually to determine if a loss is present to trigger a medical visit before valuable memory is lost forever. In addition, a recent study found that treating hearing loss with hearing aids may reduce the incidence of cognitive decline. Make your appointment today to have your memory screened along with your hearing. By appointment only. To schedule, call the Coalition at 813-419-4902 Interested in learning more about Clinical?
