Shippensburg EMS has opened a new substation at 119 Lurgan Avenue. The station is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays on a trial basis to provide better coverage for Southampton Township Franklin County. After a 90 days the station will be re-evaluated, the long range plan is to man a station 24 hours a day. A space in the building was provided Todd West State Farm Insurance, free to SAEMS and the unit sits behind the building when there.
If you have not been to the SAEMS web site lately check it out. The have recently launched a new site to replace to older one. A link can be found on the right hand side of the screen under the other SFD links.
Yesterday Shane and I took a drive through Shippensburg to photograph the new buildings. The Vigilant building lot is taking shape and you can now get a better idea how it will set on the lot. The WEFR building has the footers poured and the block is going up quickly. I will not have a chance to post any of these until next week and by the time I get back up next Tuesday or Wednesday WEFR's will really look like a building.
