Allison EMS Spotlight: Angie Groen


How long have you served on the crew? 
     I have been on the crew for 14 years.   
     Why is it important to you to serve the community? 
     It is important to me to serve the community and give back. Having been in need of the ambulance service personally, I realize how important it is to have those volunteers respond quickly.
     What is the best part of serving on the crew? Most challenging part?
     The best part of serving on the crew is helping others and working with a great crew. The most challenging part is not always being able to have a crew available for a call due to the small numbers of volunteers that we currently have.
     What advice would you have for someone thinking of joining? 
     Do it. We are always needing more members to join.
