EMS Service


The North East Town Board held a special meeting on May 2, 2016 to announce the costs associated with a proposal submitted by Northern Dutchess Paramedics (NDP) for ambulance service from 2017-2019. The Town sought ball park figures from other vendors in order to follow the most cost conscious and effective way of providing EMS service. In this process it was found that the industry standard for nearly all providers was in excess of $500,000 for our area. We also pursued the possibility of staffing-for-hire agencies to see if that was an affordable option. However, for 24 hour service as we require, the cost of staffing along with the expense of maintaining and equipping an ambulance along with the cost of coordinating a town-run EMS system exceeded the expense of a full time EMS/ambulance provider.


As a matter of process, we met with NDP and asked for a proposal to supply us with EMS service. The following are highlights of that proposal:


In the first year (2017) of the contract, ambulance service would increase from the current level of $180,000 to $260,000, an increase of $80,000.


In the second year (2018), the cost would go up to $310,000, an additional increase of $50,000.


In the third year (2019), the cost would be $340,000, an increase of $30,000.


Having looked at the alternatives available and the need for care in the coming year, The Town Board feels this is the least costly and best way to provide ambulance service. We fully understand that in a tight economy this is not the most desirable direction for our ambulance cost to be going, but we feel it is our obligation to provide adequate ambulatory service for the protection of our residents.


The Town Board will be discussing this further at the May 12, 2016 meeting
