The Town of Woodbury Police Department works closely with Woodbury Volunteer Ambulance Core in order to provide excellent emergency medical care for our residents. The majority of our officers are certified NYS Emergency Medical Technicians. Few local police departments have an EMT program due to the rigorous training necessary to become and maintain an officer's certification. Enabling our police officers, who typically are the first responders to all medical calls, to be familiar and equipped with all medical supplies needed to save lives greatly increases our ability to assist residents in times of medical distress. Our EMT's carry supplies such as oxygen, defibrillators, Narcan, splints, bandages. All of which have been used by our officers to save many lives.
This program allows residents to submit a form in order to have a Town of Woodbury Patrol Unit monitor the condition of their home for a requested range of dates to ensure that it remains in its present condition as they vacation or leave their home vacant for any other means.
