We need your help!!!!

The Northeast Harbor Ambulance Service is raising funds to purchase a new ambulance to serve the town of Mount Desert and surrounding communities. The Northeast Harbor Ambulance Service Inc. is a 501 © 3 non-profit, that has been proudly serving the people of the towns of Mount Desert and Cranberry Isles for 79 years. Our highly trained medical staff is made up of 33 fellow community members, who dedicate hundreds of hours each year to provide emergency medical care to our town.

Our service is proud to be one of the few non-profit organizations within the town of Mount Desert that doesn’t receive tax dollars to operate. We rely on generous contributions from our community members to purchase new equipment, maintain a high level of staff training, and provide medical care to our community.

The ambulance service is raising funds to purchase a new PL Custom, Type III, Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulance, at the cost of $180,000. In order to adequately respond to emergencies and provide medical aid, the ambulance service maintains and operates two ALS ambulances.  Our ambulance fleet currently consists of a 2007 and a 2013. The new ambulance will be replacing our 2007 ambulance. 

Interesting Ambulance Service Facts:

  • Ambulance personnel responded to 258 medical calls in 2016.
  • Emergency medical response is provided by our Maine licensed Emergency medical technicians and paramedics, using a combination of on-duty personnel and traditional volunteer response.
  • The Northeast Harbor Ambulance Service is the contracted emergency medical response agency for the Town of Mount Desert and the primary transport agency for the Cranberry Isles.
  • The Northeast Harbor Road Race and Family Fun Walk is our major annual fundraiser. 2017 marked the 40th running of this late summer event.

We would like to thank you for taking the time to consider donating to our community-based organization. Your contribution will to help the Northeast Harbor Ambulance Service continue to provide a high level service at very low cost for our community members and the Town of Mount Desert.
