We need your help. We understand the economy is rough right now, but your donations are vital part of our organization.

What you may not know is that Bay Shore- Brightwaters Rescue is fundamentally built on volunteers who freely give their time, 24/365 days a year. We come from all backgrounds, all walks of life but we have one common goal- to provide the highest quality of care in the quickest time to the community of Bay Shore and Brightwaters. Sometimes you see us in OSHA gear, sometimes in Class A ceremonials- Maybe you saw us wearing gym clothing that read 'State Agency of the Year'. For those that may not know, New York State DOH designated your community ambulance as " NY STATE Agency of the Year" in 2009. This is an honor and a source of pride for our community.

We are grateful for any amount you can give. More importantly however is the fact that every donation no matter how large or small is tax deductible.

As always, we thank you for your support. We cannot do it without you. Bay Shore - Brightwaters Rescue Ambulance has been a key part of our town for the last 50 years. We strive to give the highest level of care, compassion and comfort to every member of our community on a daily basis.
