Two EMS vehicles


Welcome to the Morristown EMS Department Page
The Morristown EMS Department is a combination department of paid professional staff and well trained volunteer members serving the residents of Morristown, and other surrounding communities in Lamoille County.

Starting as Morristown Rescue Squad, we began in 1974. Dr. Lewis Blowers and Copley Hospital’s President, John Whitcomb, advised the Selectmen that there was a need for an ambulance service in Morristown.They contacted the Board of Alexander Hamilton Copley Trust Fund, who agreed to purchase the land, build the building, and buy the ambulance, if the town voted to maintain and support this by tax dollars and donations.

A squad was formed, trained, and the ambulance went into service at 6:00am on June 2nd, 1975.  Morristown Rescue/EMS has been able to provide continued service since that time.

Presently, we have approximately 13 volunteer members along with three full time paid staff members, and six part time staff members, serving our communities. The areas covered are Morristown, Elmore, and part of Wolcott.  Membership is made up of Nationally Registered, Vermont licensed, EMR, EMT, Advanced EMT, and Paramedic certified staff. MEMS has approximately 800 calls a year, or two calls per day on average, with an average total response time well under 10 minutes.  We staff two Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulances from our headquarters located across from Copley Hospital.

We meet monthly for continuing education, and maintain specialty certifications in High Performance CPR, Hazardous Materials Awareness, Emergency Vehicle Driving Training, and Incident Management.  Several of our members are graduates of the FEMA Center for Domestic Preparedness in Anniston, Alabama, specializing in Emergency Medical Operations.
