Ambulance Service in Minerva
Working with Town Officials and the Johnsburg Emergency Squad, a plan was developed to provide the community with around the clock EMT coverage at an affordable price. This plan gives the Squad some what of a new look but keeps the same in-town responders serving the community.
On June 22, 2020 after a year of preparation, the Ambulance Operating Authority for the Town of Minerva was turned over to the Johnsburg Emergency Squad by the Department of Health. Minerva Rescue Squad volunteers are now on-call employees of the Johnsburg Squad. They work out of the Minerva Ambulance that is still stationed in Olmstedville and continue to work closely with the Fire Department. One EMT is scheduled per 12-hour shift and paid a flat rate for their time. The scheduled EMT responds to an emergency call from home or around town in his or her personal vehicle with equipment needed to stabilize the patient. At the same time, an ambulance from Johnsburg will respond to assist and transporting the patient if needed. If a second Minerva EMT or Ambulance Driver is available, then the Minerva Ambulance will be picked up from the station and the Johnsburg Ambulance will return to service. The goal continues to be patient care and being able to provide those in need an EMT as fast as possible. These on-call EMTs are the same people who have been serving for years and are called ‘First Responders’. An Operations Manager from Minerva takes the role formally known as ‘Squad Captain’, making sure the ambulance and equipment is in order, new members are trained, and EMTs are scheduled.
During this transition, the work of those who served before us will not be forgotten and is very important to us.

Mutual Aid Drill October 20, 2018
Big shout out to all fire departments involved in today's tanker shuttle training, North Creek, Riverside, Horicon, Schroon Lake, Pottersville and Warren County Fire Coordinator Teddy Little. There's just to many to name so a great job to all involved. In just under 2 1/2 hrs we flowed 104,000 gallons of water which translates to just about 700 gallons per minute. Also, thanks to the home owners Tom Tuffey and his wife who aloud us all to play on their property today. Lastly, thanks to Minerva's volunteers who gave up their Saturday to participate in this drill, your commitment and dedication never goes unnoticed.
