Mother Jugs and Speed Benefit Sunday!

They risk life and limb to help save ours, but what do we do for them? The Friends of EMS Foundation supports the heroes and heroines of our local EMS Department and their continued effort towards public education, awareness and prevention. We owe them A LOT of respect...and we thought, maybe a little something to help them out in their efforts including CPR training at public events!. So come out to this absurdly rare movie-going experience to laugh and enjoy life and do some good for our EMS friends, because 100% of the proceeds will go straight into life-saving programs!!!

Two privately owned ambulance companies compete for the city contract in LA. F+B Ambulance Service has the wildest crew on the block with Bill Cosby (Mother) in the driver's seat. Harvey Keitel (Speed) is a cop under suspicion for peddling drugs to minors for rent money. And Raquel Welch (Jugs) is the dispatch secretary with secret ambitions and no patience for the boys in the bunkhouse. Together they are MOTHER, JUGS & SPEED, and they are in no way indicative of the quality and caliber of our own EMS. But damn, they take you on one wild ride.

"Seriously folks, please come out and support this show. It's a fabulous film and all proceeds benefit the underfunded EMS public training and safety programs, it's a great cause!" - Tim League, founder, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.
