BLS stands for "Basic Life Support." The Plymouth Volunteer Ambulance Corps is a BLS service, that calls for aid from a Bristol or AMR Paramedic when "Advanced Life Support" is needed.
"Mutual Aid" refers to assistance from one town to another for a variety of services. The Town of Plymouth has standing mutual aid agreements with Thomaston and Bristol. If they require an additional ambulance for an emergency situation we're there to help! Likewise, if we ever require an additional ambulance in town they will send one!
As expected every year is different. Our call volume within the past few years has ranged from around 1,300 to 1,400 calls for service annually.
We provide Emergency Medical Coverage for various town events to include: the Terryville Fair, road races, parades, and many more!
