The Westport Volunteer Emergency Medical Service (WVEMS) is a volunteer organization that provides staffing for the ambulance service in the shoreline community of Westport, Connecticut. Our Volunteer teams work as part of the Westport Police Department.
Westport police officers are our primary first responders, and we are highly supported by both police and Westport Fire Department, ensuring rapid response and exceptional pre hospital emergency medical care.
Our crews are assigned shifts at our Headquarters building and are not posted in ambulances around town. Our system of on duty personnel allows people that do not live in town to be active members of our service. A large number of our members live in other communities.
WVEMS is always looking for new members to join us in “Volunteering the Gift of Life” So please, explore the web site, post a question or stop by for a visit. We would like to meet you and have you join our award winning team of professional volunteers.
