Emergency Medical Services
Mayo Regional Hospital EMS is there when you need us!
Mayo Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is one of the hospital’s largest departments. We employ approximately 60 people licensed from the EMT-Basic to the EMT-Paramedic level. Mayo EMS provides emergent, non emergent, and Paramedic interfacility response to locations in Piscataquis, Penobscot and Somerset Counties. Our primary coverage area is approximately 750 square miles, and we work closely with our neighboring services to provide the best care available regardless of location. To put our responsibility into perspective, our coverage area is approximately half the size of the state of Rhode Island.
To accomplish our mission, we respond out of three bases in Dover-Foxcroft, Dexter and the Corinth Fire Department to a 2012 run volume of over 4,500 incidents. We do this with equipment such as Stryker Power Cots, EZ-IO Drills and Lifepak 15 cardiac monitors. Our department is a mix of full-time and per diem staff.
Mayo also has 17 staff with wilderness EMS training, and Mayo is the only EMS service in Maine that maintains a wilderness advanced life support team for back country rescue support.
With Piscataquis County having a Wilderness designation, we often find ourselves far off the beaten path. Our staff receives ongoing rigorous wilderness training to meet the needs of these patients.
In addition, many of our staff are certified in Crisis Intervention Training. Mayo Regional Hospital and local public safety agencies have been nationally recognized for their collaboration and use of this model.
