The Southampton Village Volunteer Emergency Ambulance Service, INC. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3). We rely partially on donations to provide equipment and services to our department. We use donations to provide our volunteers with training, scholarships and host membership retention programs. In the past we have used our donations to provide an Ambulance, a Polaris vehicle for beach and offroad access and even a LUCAS 2 device which is an automated chest compression device used to assist our Volunteer members with doing adequate CPR.
The Southampton Village Volunteer Ambulance is currently located at 44 Meeting House Lane in a building, which needs assessment due to many inadequacies and deficiencies. Please click here to find out more.
The Southampton Village Volunteer Ambulance provides 24 hour emergency care and transport of sick and injured persons within the geographic boundaries of the Village of Southampton. Under mutual aid agreements, these services are also provided beyond the Village boundaries at the request of town, county, state, or federal agencies having such jurisdiction.
In addition to our primary mission of emergency care, we also strive to provide other types of public service. One of our most recent initiatives to keep you and your family safe is our Community CPR program. Please visit our CPR Training page for more information.
The Southampton Village Volunteer Ambulance was founded in 1993. The Department's origins date back to the 1950's when it was organized as a Veterans of Foreign Wars ambulance club. Prior to this time, ambulance service was provided by Southampton Hospital. 1994 marked certification by the New York State Department of Health meeting the criteria of having an emergency medical technician on all calls along with required specialized equipment.
In 1997, the Department came under the operational supervision and direction of the Village of Southampton, which also allowed the Village to use tax money for our operational funding.
Donations which come from our yearly fundraiser supplement our Village funds.
Currently the Department operates two New York State Department of Health certified Advanced Life Support (ALS) equipped ambulances, two ALS First Responders, and two Basic Life Support First Responders.
The Department responds to roughly 700 emergency calls per year yielding in excess of 3000 volunteer hours.
Our primary destination hospital is Southampton Hospital; however while
operating within Suffolk County and New York State EMS protocols we transport certain
trauma, burn, or stroke patients to Peconic Bay Medical Center, Brookhaven Memorial
Hospital or University Hospital at Stony Brook via ground ambulance or Suffolk County
