Review for Ossining Volunteer Ambulance Corps Inc, Ossining, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Gone are the days of volunteers. The CALL VOLUME has quadrupled in recent years. Providing 24 Hour ALS (Advanced Life Support comes with a price. Ossining Ambulance now employes Paramedics and EMT's on a per diem and full times basis they have 2 full crews at all times plus they are also home to the ALS fly car which is part of the Tri-Community EMS district. They are NOT funded by government. They are vasucally self sufficient. They also have 3 State of the art ALS AMBULANCES ready at all times. In addition to providing EMS to Ossining they have become an integral part of the war against COVID. doing testing and vaccinating by appointment. All if this comes with a cost. Anyone who can write a complaint and critcize them really needs yo understand that ANY MUNICIPALITY that provides EMS care will BILL for service. Probably at a higher cost. 99 % of people have some sort of insurance that will certainly cover the cost of transport. We are BLESSED TO HAVE THE BEST EMS SYSTEM IN THE STATE RIGHT HERE IN OSSINING.!
