New Canaan's Emergency Responders Work Together
For every 911 medical emergency in New Canaan, the New Canaan Police Department and an NCEMS ambulance, with a minimum crew of two EMTs, is dispatched. If the emergency call is of a more serious nature, the paramedic will also be dispatched and will respond in the fly car. NCPD usually arrives first on scene and begins patient care. All New Canaan police officers are trained in CPR, the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), and carry oxygen and Narcan in their medical kits. Once the EMTs and paramedic arrive on scene, they take over patient care.
