The Bonafiglia Family Foundation has donated $25,000 to North Seneca Ambulance (NSA), bolstering its ability to provide Advanced Life Support prehospital care to the Northern Seneca County community.
This generous donation comes at a critical time for NSA, which, like many Emergency Medical Services (EMS) agencies, has struggled with budget deficits due to rising operational costs and stagnant government-subsidized insurance revenues.
This funding boost allows NSA to explore long-term sustainability strategies, such as private-public partnerships and economies of scale.
In 2022 alone, NSA answered 3,800 emergency response calls, 80% of all EMS responses within Seneca County, underscoring its vital role in the community. In addition to its core services, NSA provides training for future EMTs and Paramedics. The Foundation’s contribution underscores a collective effort to ensure the health and well-being of the community.
