In 1972 a woman broke her leg in front of Lesswing’s Hardware store in York Village, less than a quarter of a mile away from York Hospital.
She waited a full hour and fifteen minutes for Earle’s Ambulance to respond from Kittery to deliver her to the hospital for treatment. The Lesswings, Henry Cadwalader, Lynn Perkins and Steve Moore all formed a committee so that York could have its own ambulance and no one would have to wait that long for transportation and treatment again. Back then the ambulance was an old hearse and the crews were all volunteers, eager to help anyone who needed it. They received Red Cross First Aid training and worked in three person crews. there was no garage so the ambulance was stored at Mary Andrews’ house and crew members were paged for emergencies.
