Founded: November, 1966
Areas of Expertise: Responding to Emergency Calls to Provide both Advanced and Basic Life Support Emergency Medical Services, Inter-facility Transports, Wheelchair and Stretcher transportation.
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. We have also expanded our organization to provide wheelchair and stretcher transportation with our DOT hydraulic lift ambulettes.
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.
Our Mission is to provide compassionate, professional healthcare to those we serve in the safest and most efficient manner possible.
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.
