The Rehoboth Ambulance Committee, Inc is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides both emergency and non-emergency medical services to the Town of Rehoboth. As a non-profit organization, we receive no direct funding from the Town of Rehoboth for the services we provide. The Town provides insurance, garaging and fuel for the two ambulances - there is NO line item in the Town's budget for the Ambulance. . All other operating expenses are covered by The Rehoboth Ambulance Committee through donations, fund raising and billing for services rendered.
If you would like to make a donation to the ambulance, you can send your donation, made payable to the Rehoboth Ambulance Committee to our mailing address: PO Box 156, Rehoboth, MA 02769. Your tax deductible donation will ensure that the Ambulance is able to continue to provide quality care with the latest technology to you and other residents and visitors to the Town.

The mission of the Rehoboth Ambulance Committee is to provide the best pre-hospital patient care through a caring and dedicated team, excellence in training and the best technologies available, while also promoting safety and public education in the community.
Rehoboth Ambulance will continue to provide exemplary pre-hospital emergency care while evolving to meet the growing needs of the community.
The Committee operates two Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulances that are purchased by the Committee and "sold" to the town at a cost of $1.00 each - an incredible savings to the tax payer! All of the equipment on these ambulances is purchased and maintained by the Committee. In addition to the ambulances, the Committee maintains an Incident Command vehicle, a disaster response trailer and a specialized utility vehicle for use at special events and extricating victims from wooded areas.
Both ambulances are staffed by volunteers from all walks life - educators, engineers, software developers, and paramedics and EMTs that work full time for other services but volunteer their time to the Committee to care for the residents of their town. While our members volunteer their time, they are compensated with a stipend to offset the costs of uniforms, fuel and costs associated with recertification. This compensation is covered under the Committee's operating expenses.
In addition to providing emergency 911 medical services to the Town, the Committee also backs up the Fire Department and Police Department as needed for rehab services and other standby's as requested by the departments. We also offer non-emergency transport services to residents of the town, as well as offering detail services to provide an ambulance to special events such as the Rehoboth Fair. If you would like to requst the services of the Ambulance for a special event or a non-emergency transport, more informationi s available under Services Offered.
