Amish Country

Blue Bell

(information from Bryan E Bledso - http://www.jems.com/authors/bryan-e-bledsoe-do-facep-faaem)

I introduced myself to approximately 14 EMTs from the Gordonville Fire and Ambulance
 Association. All showed up in their uniforms. After a great breakfast, we headed back 
to the fire station. The providers openly and honestly answered questions about their 
EMS system and their communities. My first question related to driving the ambulance. 
They all laughed and informed me that the Mennonite and non-Amish members drove the 
ambulance. We talked about training issues (they don’t use the Internet) and similar 
concerns regarding technology.

The Gordonville Fire and Ambulance Association is primarily a volunteer agency that 
serves the heart of the Amish country. When a call for a fire or EMS is received, a 
siren is sounded, and a non-Amish member of the department will drive a predetermined 
route to pick up the Amish members on the way to the station. The system seems to work 
well. The fire trucks have enlarged cabs to carry the extra manpower (often five to 
six members)—a necessary feature because the Amish can’t drive.

The service has three ambulances—one of which is staffed 24 hours a day, with the 
others being reserve units (but almost always available for back up if needed). 
Staffing during the day includes part-time paid staff and volunteer members. 
Gordonville typically responds to 800–1,000 calls a year. Most providers are EMTs. 
Despite the seeming limitations of such a system, the members are amazingly up-to-date 
on current EMS practices and controversies. We talked about various EMS issues, 
including IV fluids, helicopters and trauma care. I noted numerous issues of JEMS 
around the station and a copy of my paramedic text, Essentials of Paramedic Care open 
on the kitchen table with class notes nearby. At the end of my visit, a soft-spoken 
and blushing Mennonite member asked me to autograph her book.

Although Gordonville Fire and Ambulance is primarily BLS, ALS backup is provided by 
Lancaster County EMS—a world-class EMS operation that serves all of Lancaster County. 
The Amish and Mennonites know they live in an unusual community and trust their 
neighbors (and Lancaster County EMS) to provide needed care while respecting their 
privacy and beliefs.
