AmCare has grown considerably since the firm was established by W. Joseph Taylor, in 1981.
We were a small ambulance company with just three vehicles responding to 3,000 calls per year. Our present fleet of eight ambulances and two ‘fly cars’ respond to an estimated 10,000 calls per year. During the years, we have become known as a leader in the Emergency Medical Services community.
We are recognized to have brought the first Advanced Life Support service to the Rome (1982) and the first Advanced Airway Care program to Rome a few years after that. We are currently recognized as a benchmark for EMS skills in the field, and regularly provide training to students in Madison, Herkimer and Oneida County. In 1995, we extended our support to Volunteer agencies to provide Advanced Life Support Personnel daily.
AmCare takes pride in the quality of service we provide. All our medical staff are New York State Certified.
Our Medical Personal currently consist of
• 19 Basic Emergency Medical Technicians
• 7 Critical Care Emergency Medical Technicians
• 25 Paramedics
In addition, we have a helpful office staff to answer any questions you may have.
AmCare also employs a full time Certified ASE Mechanic qualified to repair and service the unique needs of our emergency vehicle fleet.
Partnering with Mid-State EMS education, many EMT-Paramedics receive their field training through AmCare. We employ over 30 Advanced Care Preceptors, and the diversity of calls and locations make for a rich learning experience. Emergency 911 calls, emergent transfers to specialty hospitals and non-emergent transfers expose students to a wide range of circumstances that prepare them for a career in EMS.
We strongly support the continuing education of our employees, and offer tuition reimbursement for Advanced EMT classes.
