Elizabethtown – Lewis Emergency Squad

Elizabethtown – Lewis Emergency Squad

Our Mission & Vision

Our Mission

Elizabethtown-Lewis Emergency Squad, Inc. is committed to being a leader in emergency medical services by providing our community with excellence in pre-hospital care.  This excellence will be proven by maintaining high standards, exemplary customer service, around-the-clock preparedness, continued medical education, and collaborative efforts with other agencies and strategic community partners.

Our Vision

Elizabethtown-Lewis Emergency Squad, Inc. continuously grows to meet the constant needs of our communities through quality management which will encompass continual self evaluation, public education, personnel development, promotion of safe operation, and access to injury prevention resources.

Taxpayer Cost

Did you know as a taxpayer it will cost $300,000 or more for a paid service to cover your town? Or that volunteers save you – the taxpayer – over $228,000 in cost annually?

Call Volume

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 may respond to 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.

Elizabethtown-Lewis EMS typically responds to an average of 200 calls a year. We responded to 406 in 2020.  

Donations

Are present commitments preventing you from becoming an EMS provider?
You can still help by sending a tax-deductable donation. Donations help with our general operational cost as well as purchasing new equipment and supplies. This allows our volunteers more classroom and field training to better serve the residents of Elizabethtown, Lewis, and the hamlet of New Russia.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity in advance!

Please send donations to:
Elizabethtown-Lewis Emergency Squad
P.O. Box 443
