FRAMINGHAM, MA – The City of Framingham announced today that following an RFP process, involving four Emergency Management Services (EMS) companies, that it has selected Brewster Ambulance Service as its new provider. Brewster begins July 1, replacing AMR, which has been Framingham’s EMS provider for the past 25 years.

Brewster will provide:

 Five state-of-art, brand new ambulances staffed with paramedics twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year

 Paramedic supervisor dedicated to the City

 Mobile simulation lab for advanced medical skills training for Framingham Fire Fighters

 Specialized incident resources - mobile rehab units, utility type vehicles and drones for City use

 Future mobile integrated health programs to assist in limiting unnecessary Emergency Room visits

“While each EMS company that participated in the RFP, including the incumbent, were well qualified, Brewster proposed additional resources above and beyond what others did, committed to providing the most coverage and highest skill level and demonstrated a vision for the future of EMS in Framingham,” said Joseph C. Hicks, Framingham Fire Chief. “I am confident that Brewster will bring continued safety and service to the City for years to come and look forward to working with them.”
We're peace loving people, we're not hunting trouble, but if trouble should find us, we'll stand up and fight.
