Please continue to help our efforts to raise awareness to support this life-saving service that runs solely on donations and volunteers. (The Sea Stretcher gets no funding from Southold).
In 2018 there were 63 Fire calls, 43 EMT calls and over 33 individuals with medical emergencies were transported to New London by the Sea Stretcher, thanks to the volunteer crew.
