In The Spotlight

The plaque, donated by Dr. Guttenberg’s nephew, Jesse Guttenberg, hangs in honor of the volunteer sprit, and in furtherance of the dedication of the corps to the community they serve. Dr. Michael Guttenberg has been a member of the CVAC since 1983, and is closely associated with the corps, currently serving as Ambulance Service Medical Director, a position he has held since 1997.
