WVEMS - Celebrating 40 Years of Answering The Call

2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the founding of Westport Volunteer EMS.  As part of our celebration, we decided to talk with some original members and some current members of the service about why they volunteer their time, how WVEMS has affected them, and some of their experiences working on the ambulance.

Join us in hearing in their own words how Westport Volunteer EMS has affected their lives and the lives of so many others.
