Ambulance 9-3-17 - Ford/Road Rescue

With the nearest community hospital over 30 miles away, Montauk’s three ambulances are replaced every two years due to high mileage. Typical ground transport time (with lights & siren) takes an average of 40 minutes with that time extended to over an hour during inclement weather & the summer months when the population swells with tourists at the beachfront resorts and visitors to the lighthouse. ALS level care is provided by Montauk with critical patients flown by Suffolk County Police Med-Evac to the level one regional trauma center located over 65 miles away.
