Mt. Pleasant Gets New Emergency Medical Services – Phelps Donates 2 “Fly Cars”

Earlier this year, the paramedic provider serving the Town of Mt. Pleasant Advanced Life Support District ceased operations, and something needed to be done quickly to ensure that residents in Mt. Pleasant would receive timely, expert response to medical emergencies. Phelps has maintained longstanding partnerships with local municipalities and EMS agencies to provide the best possible emergency services for the community. Working with municipal officials and local volunteer ambulance agencies, Phelps immediately arranged for Westchester EMS (the hospital’s affiliated EMS agency), to provide 911 paramedic services to Sleepy Hollow, Pleasantville, Thornwood, Hawthorne, Valhalla, North White Plains and part of Briarcliff Manor.  

In June, thanks to a generous charitable gift to Phelps, the hospital donated two paramedic fly cars to serve this district.  Fly cars are rapid response emergency medical services vehicles that are stocked with advanced life support equipment and staffed by a paramedic. When a fly car responds to 911 emergency calls, the paramedic provides advanced life support care in collaboration with the ambulance crew. Phelps has donated a total of eight fly cars since 1995, the majority of which have gone to the Tri-Community Advanced Life Support System, which includes Croton Emergency Medical Services, the Briarcliff Manor Fire Department and the Ossining Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
