Emergency Medical Services

2_WebThe Berwick Fire & Rescue Department provides non-transport emergency medical services in conjunction with American Ambulance, the Town's contracted transport provider. We respond to every request for medical assistance and begin patient care prior to the arrival of an ambulance. We have a strong working relationship with American Ambulance, and our partnership serves to provide the best possible medical care for our community.

We are dispatched by the South Berwick Police Department, with dispatchers trained in Emergency Medical Dispatch (EMD). These dispatchers will gather the patient information through a series of questions, dispatch the call, and provide instructions while awaiting help.
