There will be an additional Village Board Meeting on Tuesday January 31st at 8pm in the Village Hall Courtroom. The purpose of the meeting will be the Village Board’s consideration of a proposal for NYU Langone to provide “first due” ambulance services in the Village.

This proposal to retain NYU is based on the recommendations of the Chiefs’ staff of the Village’s Volunteer Fire Department and the leadership of our volunteer Rescue Company to contract for ambulance services, in addition to the ambulance service provided by our Rescue Company. This proposal was discussed at the last few Village Board meetings, including a presentation by the Manager of NYU Emergency Medical Services at the January 3rd Village Board meeting. The power point presentation from NYU from that meeting can be viewed by clicking the following link NYU Langone Presentation.

As with any proposed change, this proposal has generated numerous questions. Here is a link to the Frequently Asked Questions on this topic that the Village Board and Administrator have put together with input from many, including NYU and the Chiefs’ Staff.

Once you have reviewed the FAQs, if you have additional comments or questions, you can submit them to [email protected] . You can also come to the Village Board meeting on January 31st in person, or you can participate via zoom using the information below.
