Brewster Ambulance Service conducts frequent open-houses, inviting the public to see our state-of-the-art headquarters, our emergency dispatch system and to also learn what to do in the event of an emergency in the home. We encourage local families to visit with our entire family to learn how to be prepared in the event of a medical emergency or natural disaster.
We offer a variety of educational programs for the community as well as our customers for their staff. Our classes follow guidelines set by the American Safety and Health Institute.
