For the past 45 years, Dansville Ambulance has proudly served the residents and commuters within the Town of Dansville and surrounding communities. In early 1968, a group from the Dansville Fire Department decided to establish an ambulance squad.  Prior to this, emergency medical services had been provided by the funeral directors of the area, and when they ended that service in the early 1960's the Dansville Police Department took over the duties by manning the ambulances for the health department.

Our team consisted of approximately 60 men from fire department and was under the command of our first captain, the late John Welch. The squad received their First Aid Course from the late Harold "Hammy" Fries and the late Dr. Breen.  The first meeting of the new squad was held on October 20, 1968 where the operations of the ambulance in the Town of Dansville was accepted. Learn more about our history.

Today, we are dispatched by the Livingston County 911 Center. Calls are received over two-way radios and alphanumeric pagers. Our medics are required to be at least a New York State Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).

We operate a fleet of 4 vehicles and have approximately ? personnel to handle our volunteer calls of service. We are ready 24 hours a day, 7 days a week regardless of whether it’s a holiday or there is inclement weather.


Dansville Ambulance Company, Inc. is a private not-for-profit organization that operates as an independent 501(c)(3) agency. We are governed by an Executive Committee and managed by an Operations Staff who oversee the volunteers.

Our members come from all walks of life. Many are EMTs. Others are nurses, engineers, students, and even assembly-line workers. Some members have used us as a stepping-stone to further their careers in medicine. Some of our former members are now doctors, nurses, PA’s, and administrators for large EMS agencies.
