Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal for emergency service response is to streamline the process for the patient and ensure the right type of service is being provided to the patient in need. This is a multi-factor objective and requires a multi-disciplinary approach with our service partners.

Our goal for the Education Institute is to provide all levels of education for an all hazards approach to emergency response. From Moms, Dads, and babysitters, to corporations, to those interested in the emergency service field, to the seasoned certified first responder, Good Fellowship aims to educate our community so we can have better preventative care and better patient outcomes with all of those we encounter.

We actively engage with our community partners to seek ways of accomplishing our goals e.g. municipalities, county government, other first responder agencies, and community groups. We attend more than 75+ events annually in our service area and beyond for outreach opportunities. We utilize internal dashboards for measuring performance metrics to ensure that the care and education we are providing match our vision and long term strategic goals. We are financially responsible and pride ourselves on our transparency. Our members are leaders in local, regional, and national groups advocating for Emergency Medical Services (EMS). All of these strategies in tandem assist us in achieving our goals.

We have developed a consistent, well trained, frontline staff that is supplemented by a strong volunteer base as well as further defined our leadership team. The members of this organization are the backbone to our previous successes and are the key to our future ones. We have a stable outlook moving forward and have a proven record of being able to accomplish outlined goals, both short and in the long term.

We have increased our fundraising significantly over the last 4 years and intend to secure stable, consistent funding to further our greater mission. We have also enhanced our relationship with our municipal and county entities and plan to create a more global emergency services provider model based on strategic planning in the years to come. As for education, we have certified more emergency services providers year to year over the last three years and our certification pass rates have improved. We have grown to teach an all hazards approach to the greater community and have created connections with many corporate partners to ensure first aid, CPR, and safety programs are part of their organizational culture.
