Bill Armstrong purchased his first ambulance in 1946 with the belief that he could provide outstanding care for people during their time of need. After 67 years, though the company has grown to more than 90 vehicles, and over 350 employees, this belief still inspires the professional care givers who make up Armstrong Ambulance.
Recently, Armstrong Ambulance provided free CPR training to a number of City Hall employees in honor of February being American Heart Month. The employees were taught by Armstrong Paramedics that included Medford resident, Sean Mangan and Victor Marchese and EMT Wally Rucki. The course began with classroom work in which basic CPR skills were discussed such as the head tilt-chin lift and how to give proper compressions and breaths. Later, the employees, under the watchful eyes of the instructors, performed actual CPR on adult, children and infant dummies. The employees who took the class are now certified in CPR and obtained a Heartsaver course completion card. Armstrong Ambulance is hoping to host a First Aid class for the employees in the near future.
“I applaud Armstrong Ambulance for coming forward to offer this most important health class to our employees. I believe it is critical for as many people as possible to be able to learn these life saving techniques. Because of this class, we now have at least one employee certified in CPR located on each floor of Medford City Hall. I am grateful that Armstrong Ambulance offered to provide this and other classes to our City employees. In doing so, Armstrong is helping to improve the quality of life for all in the City of Medford”, said Mayor Michael J. McGlynn.
This position involves evaluating incoming calls to determine the appropriate level of emergency medical service (EMS) assistance required, dispatching units, and transmitting information and messages upon request and/or according to established procedures.

EMT Scott Cathcart and Paramedic Erik Laighton were presented with the National Stars of Life Award at an American Ambulance Association awards banquet in Washington, DC on May 1, 2012. These outstanding individuals were nominated for the award by Armstrong Management because of their dedicated, passionate commitment to EMS.
The Armstrong Stars were joined in our nation’s capital with over 70 fellow Stars of Life recipients from across the nation. The Stars were treated to a special tour of our nation’s capital. They also met with staffers for Massachusetts Senators’ Scott Brown and John Kerry. In addition to being recognized for their EMS service, the Stars also act as ambassadors of EMS so that the outside community and government leaders may better understand and value the contribution EMS makes to the community every day. Both agree that it was an invaluable experience that they will never forget. Congratulations!
