The Fishers Island Sea Stretcher Fund

Raised by 22 people in 1 month

The Fishers Island Sea Stretcher is a essential and vital part of the Islands emergence services and is run solely on donations and volunteers.
It is the life line for getting somebody with a medical emergency to the hospital.

Last year the Sea Stretcher made 33 runs and had lots of maintenance and repairs to keep it to the high level that is needed for a life saving ambulance boat. There were many new EMT’s that went though the extensive EMT training and all the crew continue to rotate 24/7 to respond to any Island emergency.

There are 41 active volunteers currently serving (many in several roles) as department officers, fire personnel, pump operators, ambulance squad EMTs, and Sea Stretcher captains and navigators. Additional members serve as advisors, drivers, radio control and in other important capacities. Founded in 1927, Fishers Island Fire Department members work closely with Dr. Chris Ingram, the Island’s year-round doctor, and the Island Health Project.

Thank you so much for your continued support in this ongoing campaign,
Kindly all the crew and volunteers
