Eventually, as EMS was developed, Pete became an EMT. Pete’s younger brother, Tommy, also became an EMT and worked on the ambulance with Pete. Legion member Clayton Clark was the chairman of the Ambulance Committee for many years. The rate of change and progression began to accelerate rapidly around 1979. The 1974 Cadillac was replaced by a 1978 Ford Type III ambulance. This ambulance did not fit in Pete’s garage, necessitating the rental of a storage unit on Mungertown Road. Dispatch by telephone was supplemented with pagers during the day. The pagers made toning for additional help possible.
