Paramedic Alliance for Community Emergencies, or PACE
Paramedic Service, is a division of Stephens Memorial
Hospital and is the only licensed-paramedic service
in Oxford County. We maintain coverage 24 hours per
day, 7 days per week coverage, offering a minimum
of two paramedics and two emergency medical technicians
(EMTs). Paramedics are healthcare professionals who
render advanced care on the scene of an emergency and
in transit from an emergency scene to the hospital.
Emergency medical technicians, or EMTs, are training
to become paramedics and are fully capable of assisting
paramedics as they utilize defibrillators, pacemakers
and IV lines to stabilize emergency patients.
PACE averages a three-minute response time from the
moment a 911 call is received until the ambulance leaves
the PACE garage. We respond to an average of 3,000 calls
per year, with a paramedic dispatched on every emergency
call. We also provide paramedic assistance to other
local ambulance services. PACE Paramedic Service assures
that your emergency will always be treated with competent
and expedient care.
