Schuyler County and Cayuga Health invite the public to an Open House for the new Schuyler Emergency Medical Service (SEMS). The Open House will be held on Monday, January 30, 2023, at the Human Services Complex, 323 Owego Street, Montour Falls, from 4-6 p.m. The free event will include a meet and greet with the SEMS staff, brief remarks by representatives from Schuyler County and Cayuga Health, tours of ambulances, and refreshments.
“We are proud of this community service we have formed through the hard work of our staff and the support of agencies in Schuyler County,” stated Dr. Martin Stallone, Chief Executive Officer of Cayuga Health. “We are eager to formally introduce the public to Schuyler EMS.”
“We view this Open House as a celebration of our contract with Cayuga Health Transport,” says Fonda Chronis, Schuyler County Administrator. “SEMS was designed to provide a greater level of service, it is already paying dividends for the residents of Schuyler County.”
Schuyler EMS launched full operations for Schuyler County’s residents on January 2, 2023. This community service is made possible by a contract between Cayuga Health and Schuyler County, through which Cayuga Health Transport provides ambulance services in the name of Schuyler EMS.
Schuyler EMS ambulances are dispatched through the county 911 system from stations in Watkins Glen, Odessa, and Tyrone.
