Why did I get a bill?

The Greene Emergency Squad doesn’t get any money from taxes. We are a nonprofit organization. Money received goes toward maintaining our building, ambulances, medical equipment, training, and staff.

What happens when I call 911?

Firstly, remember that 911 is for emergencies! Secondly, stay calm!

When you call 911 in Chenango County, you will be in contact with Chenango County Dispatch in Norwich, NY. They will automatically call the closest appropriate agency. You will then be asked some basic questions in order to get you the right services.

Is the GESI paid or volunteer?

The Greene Emergency Squad, Inc. is run by volunteers. However, in order to make sure the medical needs of the community are met, there are paid staff members who man the station from 6am until 6pm. Our strong tradition of volunteerism continues by providing coverage 6pm until 6am
