Greetings From New Taipei

New Taipei Visit

Armstrong Ambulance Service was honored to welcome a command staff delegation from the the New Taipei Fire Department from New Taipei City, Taiwan on December 11th.  New Taipei Fire Department provides EMS Emergency Ambulance service to a vast urban to rural region encompassing Taipei and respond to ice 180,000 emergency ambulance requests per year.  The New Taipei Fire Department executive command delegation is visiting the United States to learn more about US EMS systems, including electronic patient care reporting systems and share their experiences in operating a sophisticated all hazards high volume urban emergency and disaster response service in Taiwan.  The delegation toured Armstrong’s headquarters in Arlington, exchanged gifts with owner Gale Brady and were briefed on Armstrong operations by CEO Rich Raymond and asked and answered questions about EMS systems in the Boston area and USA as compared to Taiwan. Also among the Armstrong team which organized and presented to the esteemed group was Director of Clinical Integration, Ben Podsiadlo, Director of Operations, Mike Kass, Field Operations Managers, Sean Mangan and Victor Marchese as well as Paramedic, Jason Viens. It was a unique honor and pleasure to meet colleagues and share ideas and experiences with fellow EMS professionals from across the globe.  Armstrong thanks our partners at Zoll Medical for extending the exciting opportunity to meet with the New Taipei Fire Department delegation.
