Northern Oswego County Ambulance, Inc., a 501 (c)(3), non-profit organization, provides emergency medical care, transportation and basic emergency medical training for the residents of the seven towns located in the northeastern quadrant of Oswego County.
We strive to make available a highly efficient, affordable and effective ambulance service using well trained and skilled Advance Life Support and Emergency Medical Service personnel who operate specialized vehicles and equipment to meet the needs of our patients.
EMERGENCY? CALL 911
NOCA is an important lifeline for 16,000 permanent residents and 12,000 seasonal residents. Covering seven communities and nearly 400 square miles we also must be ready to serve thousands of outdoor enthusiasts, fishermen, boaters, hunters and snomobilers who come to our towns as visitors to enjoy the spectacular natural resources of the region.
The rural nature of our seven towns requires that ambulance transports are relatively long, usually 45 minutes or more to the nearest hospital. For this reason we provide”advanced life support” meaning a medic or paramedic with training beyond the EMT level is usually aboard.
