The Greenlawn Volunteer Fire Department has proudly provided Emergency Medical Services to the community for over 55 years. From the days of simple First Aid in the back of Cadillac ambulances to the most modern sophistication of today’s Advanced Life Support, the Rescue Squad responds to nearly 1,500 calls for EMS assistance every year. That averages almost four calls per day! Our community is protected with three New York State / Suffolk County Certified ALS ambulances, two BLS First Responder vehicles, and a Medic First Responder, with care provided by four Paramedics, four Advanced EMT’s, and more than thirty-five Emergency Medical Technicians. Our EMS providers are trained and certified to National, State, and County standards, and medical direction is provided by Dr. Jack Gefken, who oversees quality assurance and improvement under the direction of the Suffolk EMS Medical Director. Basic and Advanced Life Support is provided on scene and enroute to the hospital following established medical protocols and through direct contact with medical control MD’s at Stony Brook University Hospital.
