First Responders

Since 1967, many systems have been developed to lower response times to potential medical emergencies in growing communities.  When "seconds count," we like to have trained personnel on scene as soon as possible.  

Although there are a number of ambulances in Sullivan County, there are many more localized fire departments and rescue squads spread across Sullivan County.  Sullivan County has a tiered response system that allows readily available localized teams to respond to nearby crises.  These response teams bring manpower and multiple levels of training --from Medical Doctors to First Responders-- to the crisis environments faced by our Paramedics and EMTs quickly and efficiently. These teams are highly lauded amongst emergency medical personnel for their selfless acts.  With their short response times, they have repeatedly induced appropriate care and --most importantly-- prolonged viability of life in the field prior to our arrival.
