Gouverneur Rescue Squad was founded in 1966. In the beginning, we were only able to provide Basic Life Support, and ran a one ambulance fleet. Over the years our organization has dramatically grown.
Since then, we now have the capabilities of providing 24/7 Advanced Life Support, along with Basic Life Support. Our fleet has gone from one ambulance, to four fully equipped Advanced Life Support ambulances.
Not only do we provide Emergency Medical Services for 9-1-1 calls, but upon a hospital request we are able to provide inter-facility transports to a hospital of a higher level of care and provide Advanced or Basic Life Support Services while transporting patients, We are also proud to include the capabilities of our specially trained Paramedics with patients requiring specialty medications, administration of blood transfusions or airway management with a mechanical ventilator during transport.
Our Mission is to put our community first while providing compassionate, professional healthcare to those we serve in the safest and most efficient manner possible.
We strive to enhance the quality of life of those who live, work, play and visit within the boundaries of our ambulance service area by providing the highest quality and most timely emergency medical care possible.
