For 47 years, when citizens or visitors to our community have fallen ill, suffered heart attacks or strokes, been injured in accidents the North Canaan Ambulance crews have been there to answer the call.

Originally an all volunteer staff, as times have changed and call volumes increased  we have added paid staff to supplement the volunteers.


We currently have 12 paid and 19 volunteer staff, (7 active EMTs/EMRs.) The fleet has grown from one ambulance to three and a non-transport paramedic response unit.


Our mission has always been to provide the highest quality  emergency care to our community.  This  comes with an ever increasing cost. While we do bill insurances for calls, the reimbursement is not keeping pace with the costs of medications and equipment.
