The Misericordia Brotherhood in Pontassieve is a point of reference for managing health emergencies. In collaboration with the ASL and in direct contact with the 118 response centre in Florence, our ambulances operate 24 hours a day thanks to the presence of our ten drivers working cover on six hour shifts. The teams consist of Advanced Level Rescuers, trained to handle any emergency, and adhere to safety regulations, are allowed to practice early defibrillation in heart attacks. Our emergency vehicles, built with unmatched standards and safety standards, are subjected to constant and meticulous maintenance, and are kitted out with all the equipment needed to handle a critical situation professionally. The quality of our service is guaranteed by the continuous updating of our volunteers who periodically attend training courses covering a series of complex theoretical and practical examinations. The area which we cover includes the commune of Pontassieve and Pelago, and also Rufina, Fiesole, Reggello, Bagno a Ripoli and at night we also cover San Godenzo and Muraglione.
