THE COMMUNITY

Our belief, as healthcare providers, is that we use our knowledge and skills to educate the community in a variety of health related and safety topics. While we work tirelessly to respond 24/7 to emergency EMS calls within Dansville and surrounding areas, our role has expanded beyond simply treating and transporting patients to the hospital of their choice. As a constant presence in the community, we are often the “eyes and ears” within people’s homes and residences. We often see things that a patient’s doctor or other healthcare provider may never see. We don’t take this privilege lightly.

Our EMTs take time with patients and family members to help correct potential issues before they cause further harm. This effort focuses mostly on preventing injury/trauma and proper care for the elderly. Traumatic injury makes up the highest percentage of 911 calls for our agency. Many of these calls for injury may be preventable.

This section of our website offers a wide variety of information for the community including topics such as CPR & AED TrainingBlood Pressure Screening, and more.
