After the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the South Orangetown Ambulance Corps initiated a successful grass roots community outreach project called CARE LINK in May of 2002. It united Orangetown’s Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Paramedics, Police Department, and Town Government behind a common focus of saving lives and making our community safer and better prepared during emergencies through increased public awareness, community education and training initiatives. There are several important and beneficial CARE LINK programs or “links” offered to our community.
The CARE LINK Project is a unique partnership between the Town of Orangetown, the Orangetown Police Department, Rockland Paramedic Services, Inc. and the Town’s Volunteer Emergency Medical Services providers – Nyack Community Ambulance Corps, Pearl River Ambulance Corps, Piermont Fire Department Ambulance, and South Orangetown Ambulance Corps. The CARE LINK project is also proudly supported and sponsored by members of our business community including Joyce Realty and Nyack Hospital.
CARE LINK is being managed and coordinated for the Town of Orangetown by the South Orangetown Ambulance Corps Training Division. For more information about CARE LINK and any of the CARE LINK Programs offered in our community, please contact the SOAC Training Division at 845.359.3030, www.SOACEMS.org, the Orangetown Police Department, your local volunteer ambulance corps or the Town Supervisor’s Office at 845.359.5100.
