GOUVERNEUR RESCUE

ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES​

We are extremely excited to announce we have partnered with the NYS Department of Health and our local Public Health agencies to begin a Community Paramedic Program.


Our trained Paramedics will be traveling to the homes of residents who may be bed confined or otherwise unable to access other vaccine sites in the local community and administering the Covid-19 vaccine shots.


This is a great step for both our agency and Emergency Medical Services as a whole to provide even greater levels of care to the most at risk residents of our communities.


More Information on this program can be obtained by reading the article attached below.

Our providers are continuing to follow all of the current CDC guidance utilizing N-95 masks, eye protection and gloves on every call to ensure we stay protected and protect you while providing care. If a patient is confirmed to have Covid-19 or is experiencing Covid-19 symptoms we also will be wearing a disposable gown or coveralls

After any possible Covid-19 exposure our crews decontaminate themselves as well as our ambulances and equipment following a strict decontamination process set forth by the NYS Department of Health. Our processes include spraying and wiping down all equipment and the inside of the ambulance with a decontamination solution as well as using a UV light sterilization process to sterilize our equipment and the inside of the ambulance
