About Us

 

Shirley Community Ambulance is a non-profit, volunteer organization whose purpose is to serve the emergency medical needs of the residents of the Shirley ambulance tax district in Shirley, New York since 1977.

Working in conjunction with the Brookhaven Fire Department, Suffolk County Police Department, Suffolk County Sheriffs Department, Suffolk County Park Police, MTA Police and others, Shirley Community Ambulance responded to over 1,300 alarms last year with our three ambulances and two first response vehicles. We operate out of one station that protects a primarily residential area. On call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, our members respond to emergency 911 calls ranging from motor vehicle accidents and other traumatic injuries to major illnesses as well as stand-bys for fires, sporting events, and the Long Island 2 Day Breast Cancer Walk.  We provide both Basic Life Support and Advanced Life Support.  We also supply mutual aid to neighboring districts whenever requested.

Our dedicated members spend hundreds, (and in many cases, thousands) of hours every year volunteering and training to become the best possible EMS providers.  Shirley Community Ambulance has also dedicated itself to having the best equipment available to provide EMS care.
