  • We also provide mutual aid coverage to the Arlington Fire Department and Rescue Squads in Manchester and other surrounding communities.

  • Our members go through hundreds of hours of training in EMS procedures and technology and undergo regular testing to remain nationally certified as EMTs.

  • We provide first aid training for citizens, conduct blood pressure clinics and have a youth program to introduce students to the EMS system.

  • We are an independent 50l(c)(3) non-profit organization.
