The EMTAG is made up of the Emergency Medical Service professionals with the Ghana National Ambulance Service. It has over 2000 membership. Ashanti Region has the largest number in this Association.

The Ashanti Regional Executives of EMTAG, led by their Secretary, EMT Derrick Koranteng made an appeal to ASHFOAM Management, Ashanti Region. Their request to the number one leading manufacturer of foams in Ghana was to assist them with some mattresses. The appeal was presented to the Ashanti Regional Factory of the Company.

In responding to EMTAG, the General Manager, Mr. Antoine Elias, who presented the thirty (30) pieces of Student type Mattresses to the service was so thrilled that they are given out their products to personnel of the National Ambulance Service. For him, people only got to hear of the Service during Road Traffic Accident (RTA), so when he received the appeal, he never think twice on the decision to help. This according to him was their appreciation to the risk the personnel go through in trying to save lives during emergency situations.

The Marketing Manager of the Company, Mr. Albert Andomako, who was present at the donation, took the opportunity to encourage the personnel of the service to keep the good work up. In line with ASHFOAM, this was just the beginning of the relationship with the NAS and more will come up as the Emergency Medical Service Professionals continuous their service to humanity. He made it emphatically that, the Production Manager actually attached some agency to the production of these special Mattresses since the personnel are Emergency Responders.

Receiving the donation on behalf of EMTAG and the Regional Management of the Service, the Regional Officer of the Service, SnrAEMT Duut Miilon thanked the General Manager and his team for the kind service. He said the donation has come at the right time in the since that, the strength of the service has increased from 17 stations to 50 stations within the year. These mattresses are going to help the personnel during their night duties as they will have to relax while awaiting to respond to Emergency Situations. The Regional Officer was very excited receiving the donation. According to him this has being the biggest donation that the service in the Region has ever received.

The Regional EMTAG therefore assured the ASHFOAM Company that the mattresses were going to put into good use which will go a long way to help improve the personnel service delivery in the Ashanti Region.
