Operating Funds

The Rescue Squad operates with funds collected through our Revenue Recovery program.  Patients who are transported to medical facilities are billed for emergency ambulance services.  This program helps to reduce the tax burden on New Paltz residents.  Additionally, the Town and Village of New Paltz provide the Rescue Squad with financial assistance through the contract to provide Emergency Medical Services.  The State University of New York at New Paltz supports Squad operations by providing fuel for the emergency vehicles.  The Squad also is grateful for charitable donations and bequests from residents which significantly improve the financial stability of the organization.
