Woodstock Ambulance Services
The Woodstock Ambulance Service is located at the Woodstock Emergency Services Building. Misha McNabb is the Head of Service as the Paramedic and Assistant Fire Chief. The department consists of approximately 25 members. At its inception, on November 20, 1975, there was no pre-hospital level of care in the Woodstock Community. Woodstock and surrounding communities now have Basic, Advanced and Paramedic Levels in pre-hospital care along with dedicated, experienced and skilled Emergency Medical Personnel available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Woodstock Ambulance Service is the primary provider of pre-hospital emergency medical care and transport in the Woodstock community., The Town of Woodstock ordinance designated Woodstock Ambulance Service providers as the highest medical authority outside of a health care institution (with provision for physicians to maintain control under certain circumstances).
The primary goal of the Woodstock Ambulance Service is to provide efficient and effective pre-hospital emergency medical care within the Woodstock community and its surrounding response areas. We ensure professional and respectful service to the community with informative and effective care for patients and their families.
- For Woodstock Ambulance Service to be progressive, ahead of the status quo.
- For Woodstock Ambulance Service to be on the cutting edge in pre-hospital medicine and telecommunications technology.
- For Woodstock Ambulance Service to maintain quality through on-going self-examination and performance measurement.
- For Woodstock Ambulance Service to continuously upgrade automation of its billing and reporting system.
- For people to like us more today than yesterday.
The town has mutual aid agreements with the Town of Hartford, the City of Lebanon and DART to provide Paramedic service when called upon. In the summer of 2016, Woodstock Ambulance Service took delivery of a new ambulance. This vehicle is state of the art and allows our members to perform their duties in the best possible environment for pre-hospital medical care. We have also updated our pre-hospital diagnostic devices, such as our EKG monitors which allows us to quickly and efficiently treat and transport those with life threatening cardiac and respiratory events. We have updated our documentation hardware and software which allows us to comply with HIPPA updates as well as meet the improving Federal and State documentation standards and protocols. The Woodstock Ambulance Service is very appreciative of the support our town has given us with these new purchases. We remain committed to providing a progressive and comprehensive system of pre-hospital care, education, and public awareness to the residents of the Woodstock community in which it serves.
