East Windsor Ambulance Association Inc is a non-profit paramedic level ambulance service serving the Town of East Windsor CT and mutual aid to area towns. It began in 1978 as an all volunteer ambulance service that served the community for free when prehospital care options were limited. From 1978 to to 2001 the service was a basic life support ambulance service.

40 years later, we are one of the few emergency medical service systems that provide  paramedic level ambulance service without any financial contribution from our town government. It is even more rare for a community of less than a 10,000 population to have 2 full time paramedic units staffed and available nearly 100% of the time in station.

We respond to over 2600 emergencies each year and answer almost every request for service in the Town of East Windsor. Mutual aid is utilized less than 25 times each year. Auto accidents and our most serious are usually served by multiple unit responses.

Our financial funding is provided by 2 sources. Our primary source is by billing patients for service for emergency care and transport to the hospital. Our rates are strictly regulated by the State of Connecticut Department of Public Health. We always utilize the standard universal ambulance rate which is used by almost every non profit ambulance service in the state. 

Our second source is private donations by the community and businesses. Each year, we conduct fund drive mailers and solicit donations from the public. We never make phone calls for donations, nor do we outsource fund raising. 

This funding covers all expences of the association including;

  • All payroll and employee taxes
  • Workers compensation, Malpractice, automobile, and liability insurance
  • Purchases of medical supplies, medication, and equipment
  • Ambulance vehicles, repairs, and fuel
  • Heart monitoring devices, stretchers, automated cpr devices and other capital equipment
  • Administrative staff for ambulance billing and office responsibilities
  • Training and certification
  • Information technologies, fleet tracking, and personnel scheduling

The East Windsor Ambulance Association Inc. is not a business entity but a non-profit 501c-3 nonstock corporation. We are not a town agency and our employees are not town employees. There are no profits paid to owners, only salary and hourly wages to our employees for the services they perform.

If you would like to help us help you or your neighbor by making a donation either by mail to P.O. Box 188 East Windsor CT 06088 or hit the "Make a donation" button on this home page. Your donation is used for capital improvements and medical equipment.
