Midstate EMS would like to send out a HUGE thank you to all of the Medical Volunteers who helped out with this year’s Boilermaker Road Race! With over 225 medical volunteers manning the aid stations, medical tents, ambulances, UTV’s and bike teams we are the largest group of volunteers for the race. Everyone who came out to help is greatly appreciated! We had several new agencies (Frankfort Center FD and Waterville FD to name a few) who joined our long standing, tried-and-true agencies who return year after year. 2019’s race stand-by was a success and we can’t wait to work with all of you again next year!
