Call for help if moving the patient by passenger vehicle might cause further damage. (example: neck or spine injuries.)

If you suspect heart attack or stroke, call for help immediately! Minutes matter.

Is the scene dangerous?

Many patients are older adults, or have pre-existing conditions that add complication to injury or illness. When in doubt about the safety of passenger vehicle transportation, call for help


46th annual National EMS Week.

In 1974, President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week to celebrate EMS practitioners and the important work they do in our nation's communities. Once again York Ambulance will partner with EMS organizations across the country to recognize the work they do. While we support South Berwick, Rollinsford, York and our neighboring communities every day it is particularly important that we take a minute during the current crisis to say "thank you" to our team here at York Ambulance as well as EMS professionals across the country.

EMS Week brings together local communities and medical personnel to honor the dedication of those who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services of medicine's "front line." Whether celebrated with a company cookout or a catered lunch; an open house, an awards ceremony or even quiet reflection about what it means to be an EMS practitioner, EMS Week is the perfect time to recognize EMS and all that its practitioners do for our nation.

Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page to see how you can support EMS here in our communities over the coming weeks!



When it comes to stroke, every minute counts. Acting F.A.S.T. can help stroke patients get the treatments they need to survive and reduce damage to the brain.

According to CDC, more than 3 out of 5 people are aware of all major stroke symptoms and know to call 9-1-1 when someone is having a stroke. There’s more work to do—let’s make it 5 out of 5!

This May, encourage your followers to know the signs and symptoms of stroke so they can take quick action and perhaps save a life.
