The Owego Emergency Squad, Inc. is the organization that provides the Village of Owego with EMS personnel. Our members are volunteers who do not get paid. They spend many hours at New York State required training to become Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) for both basic life support (BLS) (EMT-B (basic)) and advanced life support (ALS) (EMT-A (advanced), EMT-CC (critical care), and EMT-P (paramedic)). They achieve the same certification levels as paid EMS professionals and are equally qualified in emergency responses. The members of the Emergency Squad are on call twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, including weekends and holidays. Their family lives are frequently interrupted on a moment's notice to respond to an emergency. They are selfless in their dedication.
In addition to supplemental training expenses, there are the expenses of recruitment, retension, membership management, and suplemental equipment and supplies required for running our Squad. We solicit donations to help defray costs. We are an IRS 501(c)(3) corporation (EIN: 83-1519429); all contributions are tax deductible. Any contribution amount is gratefully accepted and appreciated. You can be assured that your donation is well spent, knowing that we can continue to serve those in our community who require emergency medical response.
We would be happy to respond to any questions you may have regarding our services and are always open to suggestions on how we might better serve you.
The members of the Owego Emergency Squad thank you.
