"Good EMS doesn't happen by accident." 

     ELIZABETHTOWN - LEWIS EMERGENCY SQUAD P.O. Box 443, Elizabethtown NY, 12932 8143 US Route 9, Lewis NY, 12950   


Elizabethtown-Lewis Emergency Squad, Inc. is an emergency medical service agency at the Advanced Life Support level serving the towns of Elizabethtown, Lewis, and the hamlet of New Russia in beautiful Essex County, NY.  Elizabethtown-Lewis EMS responds to an average 250 calls annually.  

Did you know as a taxpayer it will cost $300,000.00 or more for a full time paid service to cover your town? 

Or that our volunteers save you the taxpayer - over $228,000.00 in cost yearly? 

These are just a few facts you need to be aware of as the Emergency Squad seeks both your support and that of the Town Boards.  

The ambulances respond to calls weekly and during our busy times daily and as often as 3 times within a 24 hour  period.  A majority of the volunteers have full time day jobs and often respond to 1 or 2 calls during the night and report back to work in the morning.  It takes a very dedicated community member to give this much time! They do this week after week to ensure someone is available to serve you in your time of need.

The yearly cost for paid employees reached $69,660.95 in 2016 and will exceed $85,000.00 in 2017.

The significant increase is based on the lack of volunteer coverage and the need for more daytime paid coverage on the weekends.
