The Town together with the Somers Fire District, Northern Westchester Hospital Center and 8 surrounding municipalities and their Fire and Ambulance Districts has instituted a program of Advanced Life Support (ALS) service. This service provides an enhancement to the Basic Life Support (BLS) service already provided by the Somers Fire District.
The ALS service provides “Fly” car service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. So called because they speed to the scene of an emergency, “Fly” cars are equipped with paramedics and the equipment they need to deliver advanced medical care. The system is designed so that each “Fly” car generally covers a specific geographical area. When that car is in use, the other cars reposition themselves to cover the area. This system makes Somers a safer place to live and work.
