911 Response - Prehospital Medical Services

We believe that high quality medical care doesn't wait to begin in an Emergency Room. It begins within your home, at the scene of the accident or the moment a life-threatening illness strikes.  

 Gouverneur Rescue is recognized as a reliable 911 ambulance service and a trusted provider to the 516 square miles and several communities in the greater Gouverneur area that we cover. 

Our Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics that arrive on scene are trained to perform advanced assessments, rapidly administer high quality Basic or Advanced Life Support Care, coordinate with surrounding EMS agencies, Fire departments and Air Medical services, communicate with medical control physicians, and transport patients to the most appropriate health care facility.

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 staff our four Advance Life Support (ALS) equipped Ambulances 24/7/365 with a combination of Paid and Volunteer staff.
