Trumbull EMS was established in 1976 and was the first freestanding EMS facility in the United States. “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” has been the driving force throughout the history of the organization, and that same motto remains true today. Trumbull EMS is dedicated to providing the highest level of pre-hospital care to ensure the health, safety and well-being of our residents and neighbors.
It is the mission of the Trumbull Emergency Medical Service to provide prompt and efficient medical care and transportation to all in Trumbull who are in need.
In so doing, we are guided by the following core values:
- Maintaining the highest professional standards for emergency medical care.
- Demonstrating compassion and respect for patients and members of their families.
- Fostering respectful and cooperative relationships within our service, with health care agencies and with other emergency services.
Trumbull EMS is staffed by a team of dedicated Paramedics and EMTs. We provide our community with emergency medical coverage 24 hours a day. We have a combination of both paid staff and volunteers who work seamlessly together as a team to respond to the needs of our community. Our team works under the leadership of our Chief of EMS, with support and direct oversight from the Trumbull EMS Commission. We are committed to continuing to provide current, best practice pre-hospital care, using state of the art equipment and our well maintained fleet of emergency vehicles, and delivering high quality clinical excellence in care through our highly trained team of pre-hospital providers. We also provide community training and outreach support.
Trumbull EMS is an award winning EMS service, with several of our staff members, both paid and volunteer, also winning many awards for excellence in the industry. We continue to strive for constant growth and excellence to stay current in the evolving field of emergency management and to serve the needs of our growing community.
We are grateful for the support we receive from our residents and from our partners in the field. We will be providing several continuing education opportunities, as well as EMT classes and we hope you will join us for these exciting and dynamic learning experiences. We welcome new and returning volunteers and are happy to assist you to organize required training or support you need. Come join the TEMS family and volunteer with us. You will find a truly rewarding and enriching experience, serving our town and building relationships with your fellow TEMS family!
