Our Services
About Us
Contact Us
We provide the following services to our community: 


911 Response If you live in Martinsville or the Washington Valley section of Bridgewater and you dial 911 for a medical emergency, we will be dispatched to help you.  We always have a duty crew on call ready to respond to emergencies.  We also have members throughout our area equipped with life-saving equipment who can respond directly to your home in the case of a life-threatening emergency.  Direct responders can often reach your home within 5 minutes of your 911 call.
Prearranged, Non-Emergency TransportIf a resident needs occasional assistance transporting a loved one between home and an area healthcare facility such as a doctor's office, rehabilitation center, or nursing home, we may be able to help.  With sufficient advance notice we may be able to get off-duty squad members to do the transport in one of the squad ambulances.  These non-emergency transports must be scheduled in advance - the more advance notice you provide, the more likely we will be able to help.  We recommend that you contact us at least 3 days in advance.  For routinely occurring transport needs you should make arrangements with a paid transport service.
Home Healthcare Equipment LoanWe maintain an inventory of equipment for loan to those in need.  Equipment includes wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, shower chairs and more.  Equipment is loaned out at no cost and is returned to us when the resident no longer needs it.  Call us to check availability.
CPR Training


We regularly schedule community CPR training sessions.  We advertise the training sessions in our annual fund drive mailing in March.  We have certified instructors who teach the American Heart Association's "CPR for Family and Friends".  At least twice a year we hold "BLS Healthcare Provider" recertification sessions for squad members and those in the healthcare profession who need professional level training.
