A personal service for you and your family
Each year our ambulances respond to more than 3,000
calls, providing assistance when emergency medical services are needed by you and your family.
Consider the following:
- Most users of the ambulance service never expect that they will need an ambulance.
- Ambulance is the safest and most immediate access to a hospital in an emergency.
- Two fully equipped ambulances, respond to calls at all hours of the day, each day.
