Changes in Ambulance Services
Jan 14, 2016
Territory of Akwesasne – The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe and the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne is informing the community that in addition to the Akwesasne Mohawk Ambulance Unit, Akwesasne will have an additional emergency response service available.
This additional service takes into account the community’s increasing needs and will provide both the northern portion and the southern portion of Akwesasne with a primary responder and a backup unit for ambulatory care. The Akwesasne Mohawk Ambulance Unit will continue to serve Akwesasne, with Seaway Valley continuing to provide support in a backup role. The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe has engaged Seaway Valley Ambulance to provide response services to the southern portion, with the Akwesasne Mohawk Ambulance continuing to provide support.
The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe, Mohawk Council of Akwesasne and the Akwesasne Mohawk Ambulance want to reassure the community that the provision of an essential first responder ambulance service is of utmost importance. Our responsibility to care for vulnerable community members still remains our number one priority.
For more information, community members are encouraged to attend the February 6, 2016 Monthly Tribal Meeting held at 10am in the Community Building lobby. There will be an additional presentation made at an upcoming MCA General Meeting.
