Have You Been Treated or Transported by Walworth Ambulance?
Walworth Ambulance Inc. began providing ambulance service for the Town of Walworth on December 10, 2008. We began third-party billing on January 1, 2009.
If you have been a patient of ours, please feel free to read over our Privacy Notice and complete a Patient Feedback Form (links located in the menu to the left). Thanks!
Ambulance service in the Town of Walworth was run by the Walworth Fire Dept. as a sub-committee for many years. In 2008, members of the fire dept. started Walworth Ambulance Inc. and the Walworth Fire Department Ambulance Service disbanded, transferring their DOH Certificate to the newly formed not-for-profit.
Our "new" organization provides emergency medical care and transport to the residents of Walworth, West Walworth, and Lincoln Fire Districts. We currently use two modular ambulances (AM-17 and AM-60), and an advanced-life-support first response vehicle (Medic-25). Our trained volunteers respond to medical emergencies in our coverage area day and night, twenty-four hours a day. We generally transport patients from our community to Rochester General, Strong, Highland, Clifton Springs, and Newark-Wayne Hospitals.
Quality Teamwork! We often work along side our neighboring EMS agencies during emergencies. We have an agreement with Wayne County Advanced Life Support Services for a joint use of Medic 25. For 40 hours a week, Medic 25 is used as County Medic 81. By doing this agreement it allows us to have a closer and more timely access to advanced care in life-threatning emergencies. Sometimes, we have to call additional ambulances from surrounding agencies when we have calls that involve several patients. When things get really severe, we will requested Air Medical. Wayne County Dispatch will then send a helicopter to the scene or near by to fly the patient(s). Together, we can handle a veriety of medical emergencies that occur in oure community and neighboring communities.
Our volunteers are trained through a variety of state and county courses. They volunteer their own personal time so that they can receive the training they need to better our community. Here's a partial list of the courses our members have taken:
Emergency Medical Technician - Basic
Emergency Medical Technician - Critical Care
Emergency Medical Technician - Paramedic
