Cabot Emergency Ambulance Service
The Cabot Emergency Ambulance Service is a private organization established over 50 years ago by Dr. Frank Caffin and his wife Virginia. The Caffin’s recognized that delaying treatment while awaiting an ambulance had a negative impact on a patient’s overall outcome. Because of Caffin’s generous donation, Cabot Ambulance was founded.
Equipment and operating expenses are paid for by patient transports and an annual appropriation from the Town Budget. Additional funding will occasionally come from donations of former patients or their families who whish to show appreciation for the service and its members.
Operation of the Ambulance includes evaluation and stocking of inventory and supplies, maintenance, and scheduling service of the apparatus, and ensuring infection control protocols are followed between calls. Our responders assist out community and its visitors by responding for lift assists, medical transports, car accidents, and fire standbys to support our local fire departments.
Cabot Emergency Ambulance service responders are volunteers, with only a small stipend for members that attend a high number of calls annually or manage our administrative functions. The men and women who volunteer with the organization have done so for many reasons of the past 50 years. It is their passion for helping others and one another that continue to make this organization as success.
If you are interested in learning more or becoming a member of Cabot Ambulance, please contact us. Our monthly meetings are held on the 4th Thursday of each month at 6 pm at the fire station.
We are always looking for volunteers to join our organization.
