Essex Rescue is a licensed advanced life support (ALS) ambulance service that responds to over 1,800 calls a year in Essex, Essex Junction, Underhill, Jericho and Westford Vermont. Our active roster consists of over sixty volunteer members and a career staff of four (4) that have been trained at the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Advanced EMT (AEMT), or Paramedic level allowing us to provide 12 lead EKG interpretation, IV Therapy, advanced airways, pharmacological pain management and many other skills.

We also have a First Response system to respond quickly in the large geographical area we serve. Our first responders are Essex Rescue members that respond directly to the scene before the ambulance arrives. Our first responders carry the same equipment found on the ambulance. This allows them to deliver life saving care more quickly and efficiently.

Essex Rescue is a private non-profit 501c3 self-supported service and not a municipal agency.

Essex Rescue's Mission Statement: Essex Rescue is committed to being a leader in EMS and to providing our community with excellence in pre-hospital and out of hospital care. We strive for this by maintaining the highest standards of our profession; caring for our patients; their families and the community, and preventing illness and injury through public education.
