Cutting the Ribbon on an Ice Cream Emergency

Summer Grand Opening on a Jersey Shore Mobile Ice Cream Experience ties into EMS Recruitment Event Aug 10


Join the Southern Ocean Chamber, Stafford Township EMS and Ice Cream Emergency - Jersey Shore from 5 to 7pm, Thursday August 10 at 365 Bay Avenue.


There is more than one way to enjoy an August business celebration at the Jersey Shore, by raising awareness for local first responders.  The Southern Ocean Chamber will be joining Ice Cream Emergency and the Stafford Township EMS for a special event happening Thursday, August 10 from 5 to 7pm. This family owned and operated mobile ice cream parlor looks like a rescue vehicle, but will focus this grand opening event on the real heroes hosting them at 365 E Bay Ave in Manahawkin. The entire community is welcome to tour the custom ICE bus and enjoy free ice cream. There will be opportunities to donate to the Stafford Township Volunteer First Aid Squad as well as learn to save a life with hands only CPR demonstrations. Attendees can step up to be heroes as well, by making a blood donation appointment with the first aid squad and Vitalant services. Each blood donation can save up to 3 lives, and is much needed throughout the year.

Started as a family business twelve years ago, our region welcomes the Jersey Shore Franchise of Ice Cream Emergency owned and operated by the Gilberson Family.  The newest scoopologists are Ali and Joe and their three children. Joe is a full time paramedic for over 20 years and along with his wife and daughter volunteer with the local first aid squad. This a mobile, full service ice cream parlor disguised as a whimsical rescue vehicle that comes directly to your private, corporate, school event or fundraiser. There are several packages to choose from offering a delicious selection of premium ice cream and other options. This unique service is available year round and is not weather dependent as guests board the bus and are served inside.  Serving towns within  Ocean, Burlington and Atlantic Counties, you can contact them directly to arrange an event through their website.  Come meet the crew as they scoop up smiles August 10.

The Squad provides CPR, EMT, Incident Command and other critical lifesaving trainings for free, interested volunteers can build experience and certifications for a variety of careers.
