I feel that I needed to share with you a recent experience that had me see first hand that an EMS professional was more than just a life saver. 2 1/2 weeks ago my 15 year old next door neighbor suffered severe burns. As he sat in the CPHM Ambulance, one of the EMS guys took great care to reassure his 10 year old sister that her brother was going to be fine. She was very upset. Recognizing this, the EMS gentleman bent down to her level and told her “not to laugh at her brother because he is going to look a little funny because he has no eyebrows.” It made all the difference to her and her mom to have that small moment of brevity and humor at a time of chaos and fear. I myself was very moved by how he handled the situation outside the ambulance as well as inside. Thank you for maintaining such a amazing, professional staff at CPHM Emergency Corps to serve, save and comfort our community. God bless you all!
You greeted us with smiles on your face and were professional at all times.

It’s important to recognize the dedicated EMS providers across Saratoga County, who are the front line responders to accidents, fires and emergencies,” said, Michael Zurlo, Saratoga County Sheriff. “These men and women provide lifesaving care to those in need 24 hours a day, seven days a week and for that they deserve our heartfelt thanks.
Residents of Clifton Park are lucky to have such a fine health resource as the Emergency Corps.

The Town of Clifton Park has experienced residential growth since the 1960s and by 1990 had 30,000 residents. Over the years our first responder community has met the challenge of providing professional service to the community. CPHM EMS has been an integral partner, growing in size and expanding the capabilities of the organization as technology and new life saving techniques required intense training of front line responders. Our continuing challenge is to provide exemplary service in the most efficient and cost effective manner. The Town of Clifton Park appreciates your dedication to service and partnership.
We are always so grateful to CPHM for their quick response to all of our emergency calls. They did such a great job keeping my husband calm and comfortable through every situation.
