For several years after the Greenwood Volunteer Fire Company (GVFC) was organized & providing fire protection in our community. The Bridgeville Volunteer Fire Company(BVFC) was responsible for providing our community with an ambulance service.

In 1980, several members of our company enrolled in the Ambulance Attendant Certification courses that were provided by the Delaware State Fire School. After refurbishing an old Dodge resdue truck, these individuals began to run medical assist with BVFC (Station 72) on all emergency medical calls within Greenwood. Our first ambulance was purchased & put into service in 1981. At the time, there approxiamately twenty certified ambulance attendants providing emergency medical services to community.
