Emergency Medical Services (EMS)
Through a partnership with the Town of New Fairfield and its volunteer fire department, Western Connecticut Health Network provides EMS personnel and paramedic support to enhance emergency medical care, treatment and transport services for New Fairifeld residents and locations. This model was the first of its kind in the State of Connecticut utilizing paid EMS personnel during weekday hours and volunteer personnel with our on-call paramedic covering night hours and weekends. Through contracting with EMS at WCHN, New Fairfield has gained dedicated EMS services while being sensitive to town budgetary concerns. Since the inception of the program, New Fairfield has had a 100 % first call capture compared to 86 % before implementation of daytime/on-call staffing. We continue to work in partnership with New Fairfield Volunteer Fire Department to enhance the response to requests for EMS support.
