Killingworth Ambulance Association (KAA) is operated by a dedicated group of community members and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT's), committed to providing outstanding patient care and community service to the people of Killingworth, CT. Our EMT's are continuously trained to rapidly and efficiently respond to all types of medical and trauma emergencies. KAA also runs a variety of classes throughout the year, including EMT, EMT re-certification, CPR/AED, and basic first aid . If you are interested in learning what is required to become an EMT, taking any of the classes we offer, or becoming a volunteer with KAA in any way, please contact us via email. We are always looking for new volunteers to join to the KAA family!
*EMT Class Offered*
Killingworth Ambulance Association will offer classes, starting on August 28, at its Route 81 location for all persons interested in becoming EMTs. Classes will be held on Mondays and Thursdays, 6-10 p.m., with five Saturdays devoted to practical skills. Those classes run from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. For more information, contact the KAA’s Marguerite Haaga at (860) 663-2450.
Killingworth became the first town in Connecticut to have its residents certified for the “Stop the Bleed” program when 19 persons – including Killingworth Ambulance Association EMTs and board members – on July 5 completed a one-hour course led by Dr. Carolyn Rambus, an emergency medical physician at Yale-New Haven Health and a KAA board member. With its first step, the KAA hopes to launch classes for persons or groups interested in learning more about “Stop the Bleed,” a national awareness campaign launched in October, 2015, and intended to encourage grass-roots efforts to empower the general public to help in bleeding emergencies before professional help arrives. For more information or to set up a class, contact the Killingworth Ambulance Association at (860) 663-2450.
