Commack Ambulance taking part of EMS of Tour during NYS EMS Week

Posted 5/5/2019

This coming May 19 through May 25, New York State will celebrate EMS week, acknowledging the dedicated men and women who volunteer and work as EMT’s, Paramedics, and Certified First Responders. This year, the State has challenged us to go “Beyond the Call” and spend more time out in the community. 

To kick off our week-long celebration, Commack Ambulance will join with our colleagues throughout the state by participating in the “EMS on Tour” event. On May 19th, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, our volunteers will be traversing the town to visit homes, businesses, shopping centers, parks, and community gatherings to offer demonstrations of our equipment and skills. This is a fantastic opportunity to familiarize yourself with what to do in an emergency, how to summon an ambulance, as well as a great chance to help our younger residents be more comfortable with EMT’s and Paramedics if ever faced with a medical emergency. The ambulances will be open for hands-on exploration so you can see all the materials and cutting-edge equipment available at your side if you should ever need to call for help. 

Beginning May 1 and ending May 12 residents can inquire about sponsoring a stop at their home, business, or any location within the Commack Volunteer Ambulance Corps response district. We ask that residential stops invite your neighbors and have at least 5 kids (or adults!) who are interested in learning about the ambulance. We’re glad to visit shopping centers, houses of worship, or even parks. Our visit will typically take 15 – 20 minutes.
