Croton-on-Hudson's Emergency Medical Service is a volunteer organization, assisted by paid staffing. that provides ambulance service to the Village of Croton-on-Hudson and Mt. Airy and Quaker Bridge Fire Protection Districts, in the Town of Cortlandt. Croton EMS responds to over 700 calls per year.
In 2008, Croton EMS separated from the Croton Fire Department. Croton EMS started with a core of 22 experienced members of the Croton Fire Department . One advantage of separating the EMS to its own department is that the Village of Croton-on-Hudson can now bill for medical services. This helps provide revenue for the village and helps cover the cost of paramedic service. Croton EMS is on its 10th year of operation and is a VOLUNTEER agency.
Croton EMS administration is located at 44 Wayne Street. Ambulance operations is located at the Harmon Firehouse, located at 30 Wayne Street.
