2021 Centre LifeLink Membership Drive Underway
State College, PA- The 2021 Centre LifeLink membership campaign is officially under way. Each fall, Centre Region residents are encouraged to enroll as a Centre LifeLink member, ensuring them that they will have no out-of-pocket expenses for unlimited emergency ambulance service provided by Centre LifeLink EMS. Memberships are available beginning this week and residents in Centre LifeLink’s coverage area will receive a membership brochure with information on how to participate.
Members can save an average of $800 for basic life support calls and more than $1,500 for advanced life support paramedic service — these are the average costs nonmembers pay. Individual memberships cost $55 and family memberships cost $75 for a one-year period beginning Jan. 1 and ending Dec. 31, 2021.
Funds raised through the 2021 Membership campaign will help Centre LifeLink offset the cost of responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Centre LifeLink has been experiencing record-low call volumes that have financially impacted operations. LifeLink has also incurred the unexpected expense of purchasing the appropriate personal protective equipment and supplies for crew members. Centre LifeLink does not receive any tax-support for its operations.
Residents of the Centre Region will receive 2021 membership brochures in the mail this week, and registration is also open online at www.centrelifelink.com.
