NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. (July 31, 2018) —Mobile Life Support Services, the largest emergency medical provider in the Hudson Valley, recently announced the opening of a new emergency response station in the Town of Poughkeepsie. Station 24 will be Mobile Life’s third station in the Town of Poughkeepsie and will be located in the southeastern portion known as Red Oaks Mill. It is expected to open on Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018. Mobile Life already has two other stations in the Town of Poughkeepsie, one in the northeastern corner of the Arlington Fire District and one further south in the New Hamburg Fire District.
Mobile Life recently built and opened Station 26 in the City of Poughkeepsie in June of 2017 which is home to seven crews. Four 24-hour shifts and three additional day shifts ensure adequate resources are available, should emergency issues arise during the busiest time of day.
“Opening this station enables Mobile Life Support to enhance its coverage and its service,” said Mobile Life President and CEO Scott Woebse. “We hope to reduce our response times, allowing us to expedite emergency medical care and better serve the Town of Poughkeepsie.”
The Mobile Life ambulance fleet is composed of more than 60 vehicles, which are dispersed throughout the Hudson Valley, including Dutchess, Orange, Rockland, Ulster and Westchester counties. The company serves as the designated 911-EMS Agency for more than a dozen municipalities, including Newburgh, Middletown, Kingston and Poughkeepsie, and provides emergent and nonemergent ambulance transportation services to most of the 14 hospitals in its service region.
Mobile Life is dedicated to maintaining exceptional response times and continually introduces innovative technology that allows its medical professionals to provide the best service and care to the communities they serve. Every Mobile Life emergency response unit is equipped with GPS tracking and Automatic Vehicle Locators (AVL) that feed data into a Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system to ensure that the closest available unit is dispatched to the call location.
