A COMPLETE CHRONOLOGICAL TIMELINE OF OUR JOURNEY
FOUNDER & COMMANDER
JOHN QUADRINE, JR.
A plot of land on North Barry Avenue Extention is donated to the Village of Mamaroneck by Joseph Germano. The land will become the future home of Mamaroneck EMS.
Seeing a need for pre-hospital medical services and understanding the importance of volunteerism in the community, John Quadrine Jr. founds the Mamaroneck Rescue Squad with the support of Charles Rigano as a unit of the Village of Mamaroneck Fire Department.
Following years of successful operations and expansion, the Mamaroneck Rescue Squad becomes an independent agency in the Village of Mamaroneck.
The Town of Mamaroneck Ambulance District is formed which expands the scope of the now, Mamaroneck Emergency Medical Service (MEMS), to provide advanced life support services.
Dispatching for medical emergencies in Mamaroneck is transferred to the Westchester County Department of Emergency Service's 60-control. This enhanced dispatching by Emergency Medical Dispatchers (EMD) provides callers with critical pre-arrival information and instructions to allow for the best patient outcomes.
Mamaroneck EMS begins to operate an offroad utility vehicle, 68-U1, allowing the agency to provide emergency medical services in trails, parks, and pathways that are difficult to be reached by ambulance.
The fleet of vehicles is expanded to include a BLS fly car, 68-05.
