The South Country Ambulance Company boasts some of the most advanced and highly-equipped vehicles in Suffolk County. These vehicles, when paired with the vast skill and professionalism of our motor vehicle operators, emergency medical technicians, and paramedics provide the highest level of care to over 45,000 residents of the South Country Ambulance District. Our vehicles feature state-of-the art emergency lighting systems (including 360º scene lighting– a feature rarely installed on ambulances), advanced air ride suspension, 200-watt speakers coupled with dual stutter-tone air horns, as well as a Brigade 360º camera system with a simulated bird's-eye-view display. These features allow our providers to safely respond to the scene of medical emergencies while ensuring the vehicle can move safely through traffic– regardless of weather or road condition.
In addition to the features of the vehicle itself, every ambulance sports a large patient compartment equipped with the latest Stryker PowerPro XT stretcher and PowerLoad system, as well as brand new LifePak 15 cardiac monitors and Lucas CPR devices. All ambulances are capable of the highest level of prehospital care, or "Advanced Life Support."
Finally, the Department maintains a fleet of First Responder vehicles: 3 Advanced Life Support and 2 Basic Life Support which are staffed 24/7. These vehicles can move through the District much more quickly than an ambulance and also have the ability to go off-road, courtesy of their 4WD system, adding yet another obstacle the South Country Ambulance can overcome at any time of the day.
