NorthStar, the regional ambulance service for Greater Franklin County, celebrated its fifth birthday in 2010. As part of the Franklin Community Health Network family, NorthStar’s 75 EMS professionals follow their mission of respectful patient care, positive community activities, good stewardship of resources and excellent patient care. This mission is evident throughout NorthStar’s operations with 5,000 calls a year to the 71 communities over the 2,800 square miles it proudly serves. With state-of-the-art equipment and modern ambulances, the service is ready, responsive and reliable.
Situated among the beautiful western Maine mountains, NorthStar is dispatched out of five base locations strategically positioned throughout the region. NorthStar responds to calls ranging from medical emergencies to auto accidents, from snowmobile to ATV rescues, from nursing home transfers to boating accidents. NorthStar’s extensive community service activities round out the professionalism of its service and its staff.
