Brewster Ambulance Service is committed to providing the safest transportation for people with medical support needs, in both emergency and not critical situations.
Founded in 1906, Brewster is one of New England’s oldest ambulance services. Our leadership creates a sustainable financial strategy so we may continue to be a reliable service provider that builds long-term relationships with our clients. Brewster has more than 2,500 team members on its team in nine locations servicing major hospitals and communities from Boston to Cape Cod, translating to 75 percent of the Boston market. With a fleet of more than 400 vehicles, Brewster provides more than 350,000 transports a year, operating in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Florida.
Brewster has been the first in some of the most critical EMS initiatives that have helped the entire Commonwealth provide better response, clinical advancements, technology, and in-the-field best practices. These firsts include:
Deployed Narcan (naloxone HCl) to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose throughout our entire fleet and Albuterol (Ventolin) to reverse bronchospasms.
Implemented Smart911™, enabling us to provide enhanced accuracy, response, and more proactive care to patients.
In support of Governor Charlie Baker’s opiate task force and the STEP law, we were the first EMS provider to use Toradol.
Deployed aerial drones in the field in partnership with our municipal first responders.
Equipped all of our vehicles with Combat Application Tourniquets (CATs) well before the state made it mandatory.
Rolled out the Take10 Compression-Only CPR Training Program and Stop The Bleed campaign initiative as part of our community outreach programs.
Increased community-wide awareness and Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) programs by distributing multilingual AEDs, conducting a due diligence of existing AEDs in communities, including compiling police, fire rescue and EMS resources, and strategically locating new AEDs so they cover important gaps in each of the communities we serve.
