OUR HEALTH SERVICES TEAM
If you need medical assistance or an ambulance, call 911.
Their dispatch system is remarkably fast and efficient and, of course, time is of the essence in health care.
Emergency Medical Needs
Trained EMS volunteers, under the direction of Toledo’s Mercy St. Vincent’s Hospital Paramedic Sharon Devine, provide prompt, efficient and caring response to island emergencies via Island-based ambulances.
The EMS squad works in conjunction with mainland ambulance and hospital systems for injuries or illnesses requiring more advanced medical attention. Our EMS squad participates in regular training and each volunteer has fully up to date credentials. Some of our volunteers are also certified in pediatric care and other specialty areas.
Life Flight connects patients in medical emergencies to mainland hospitals year-round, weather permitting. Residents can purchase Life Flight Membership through St. Vincent & University of Toledo Medical Center Critical Care Transport Network. Applications are available from the Village Office or can be downloaded here: LIFE FLIGHT MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION Life Flight page 1, Life Flight page 2 . If the injury is serious but non-life threatening, EMS personnel can transport patients on the ferry, connecting with the Danbury Township EMS who will complete the transport to a nearby hospital.
For additional information please contact the EMS Paramedic.
