Adirondack - Appalachian Regional Emergency Medical Services Council


Welcome to our Web Site - Recognize the Blue and White Symbol?

It’s the Star of Life, the symbol of Emergency Medical Services (EMS). In the center is the Staff of Asclepius, the mythological Greek god of medicine. The "points" of the Star (beginning at twelve o’clock) represent the functions of EMS – Detection, Reporting, Response, On-Scene Care, Care in Transit, and Transfer to Definitive Care. The rest of the AAREMS logo depicts the boundaries and names of the counties we serve in New York State.

The State Department of Health has updated information available on the Ebola virus on their EMS website. This information will be kept current. To access the page, follow this link - http://www.health.ny.gov/professionals/ems/

We invite all agencies based in our Region to send us photos of agency vehicles and/or agency activities for inclusion in our slide show (above). It is our policy, however, to withhold from publication any photo which would violate patient confidentiality. All rescue activities currently depicted are training exercises.

We look forward to hearing from you!
