The Washington Ambulance Association is a group of compassionate, dedicated and highly trained volunteers who serve the town of Washington and neighboring communities. WAA responds to over 350 requests for emergency medical services per year.

WAA members are certified by the State of Connecticut as either Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) or Emergency Medical Responders (EMRs). Our current roster consists of 28 EMTs and 7 EMRs. All members are required to attend training drills and classes on a regular basis to maintain their certification. All WAA members are issued “jump kits” to be carried in their personal vehicles so that they are able to respond directly to the scene of an emergency. We have two ambulances in service to respond to our community's growing needs. In the event that there are multiple calls simultaneously, the Washington Volunteer Fire Department can respond with a crew of medically trained personnel on Rescue One or Rescue Two. We are also supported by our Washington Police Officers who maintain medical training to assist us on calls. In addition, WAA has access to the regional paramedic as well as Life Star Aero-Medical Helicopter. We are proud to offer such reliable and robust Emergency Medical Services!

Safe transportation of our patients is of the utmost importance. All of Washington Ambulance drivers are Certified Emergency Vehicle Operators (CEVO). Our ambulances are outfitted with life saving equipment such as a 12-lead Electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG), a Lucas-2 Automated Chest Compression Device, and Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). The newest ambulance in our fleet, A2, is equipped with a Stryker Power Cot and Power Loader. A2 also has many enhanced safety features such as a heavy duty brush guard and patient compartment 4-point seat harness restraints. The majority of our patients are transported to New Milford Hospital. However, circumstances may require transport to Danbury Hospital, Charlotte Hungerford Hospital, Sharon Hospital or Waterbury Hospitals.

 Thanks to the support of the community, the Washington Ambulance Association is able to operate without charging patients for calls. We are one of only a few Connecticut ambulance services able to provide free emergency medical services.
