24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Marbletown First Aid Unit's all volunteer squad answers emergency medical calls for residents of High Falls, Stone Ridge, Cottekill, Kripplebush, Lomontville, The Vly and North Marbletown. We provide courteous, quality emergency medical care and transport for residents in our state of the art ambulances to area hospitals.
Most residents don't know that our all-volunteer agency is only partially funded by the taxpayers of Marbletown. Regular citizens like yourself who volunteer their time to help their neighbors or donate funds, are the life blood of our agency. With your support, we can ensure Marbletown First Aid Unit thrives and continues to provide life-saving emergency care for local residents.
A History of Service
The Marbletown First Aid Unit (MFAU) has operated continuously as an all-volunteer ambulance service since its inception in 1961. Headquartered in High Falls, MFAU’s two dozen volunteers serve Marbletown and parts of Rosendale and Rochester. We rely on financial support and contributions from the communities that we serve.
MFAU was founded by Harriet Weber, considered the mother of emergency medical services in New York State. In recognition of her contributions, New York State bestows annually the Harriet C. Weber EMS Leadership Award to the EMS who has demonstrated the highest levels of executive and management skills in establishing, maintaining, promoting or expanding EMS organizations at the community or state level. In addition, there is a plaque in Albany bearing her name.
