The Town of Vernon is proud to offer its residents emergency medical services at a moment’s notice, provided by paid EMT staff 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Vernon EMS has three ambulance units in town, with at least two fully staffed units available nearly 24 hours per day. Our staff responds with state-of-the-art equipment, including LUCAS mechanical CPR devices, BLS advanced airway management units, and advanced bleeding control and trauma supplies. Besides responding to the emergency calls from our residents as well as providing mutual aid to surrounding communities, our crews also actively participate in community outreach services, including CPR training, demonstrations for local schools including the Fire Tech Class offered by Rockville High School, sports standbys for quick responses to potential emergencies, and presence at various community events.
We receive primary Advanced Life Support (ALS) intercept services from the Rockville Paramedic, provided by American Medical Response. This paramedic is stationed at the Vernon Public Safety Building, which is where our two primary ambulances are located. The Rockville Paramedic responds with our ambulances, as well as ambulances in surrounding towns, for calls that may require advanced medical treatment to supplement the Basic Life Support care that our highly-trained EMTs provide.
For more information or any inquiries, please contact the Chief Medical Officer Monday through Friday, during business hours, 8:00am-4:30pm, at (860)871-7468, extension 2.
