Town of Madawaska Maine Ambulance Service

Madawaska Emergency Medical Services

The Madawaska Ambulance Department began in the 1960’s and was run by the Town’s Funeral Home. Their hearse doubled as an ambulance with a simple red light placed on top for responding to emergency calls. In 1971 High View Manor took over the ambulance services and was staffed by volunteers only. In 1978 it was decided that the ambulance services should be run by the Town and staffed with full-time employees. At this time the Town sent their ambulance staff to Emergency Medical Technician School which eventually led to all employees having a paramedic or EMT license.

Aside from responding to emergency calls in Madawaska and providing mutual aid for neighboring towns, the ambulance staff is responsible for maintaining the Safety Complex Building and staying current with their EMT and paramedic licenses that expire every 3 years.

The Madawaska Ambulance Department is made up of 16 paramedics and drivers, however only 5 are full-time. Last year, this Department responded to a little over 600 emergency calls and continues to host free blood pressure clinics 2 days a week at various elderly homes, cover all sporting events at Madawaska Schools and offer CPR and basic First Aid Training classes. Last year the Madawaska Ambulance Department received a 2015 ambulance with up-to-date technology with capabilities to respond to more emergency situations. They were also able to purchase a new cardiac machine to replace 1 of their fourteen-year-old machines and hope to purchase another one this coming year.

The Madawaska Ambulance Department has a dedicated, professional staff willing to go to great lengths in order to help the community. To become a member of their team, contact 728-6126.
