Serving Our Town Since 1975
New Canaan EMS ("NCEMS"), formerly known as New Canaan Volunteer Ambulance Corps ("NCVAC"), provides 911 emergency medical care and transport to either Stamford or Norwalk Hospitals. We are staffed 100% by certified Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) who volunteer their time to serve our community. In addition to our member EMTs, since 1996 the Town of New Canaan has contracted with Norwalk Hospital to provide a paramedic on location at our NCEMS Headquarters. Paramedics are more highly trained emergency medical professionals who are able to provide Advanced Life Support ("ALS") interventions that may be necessary to treat life threatening emergencies.
