TERRYVILLE, CT - February 1, 2023 - James Dubowsky has been named Chief of Service for the Plymouth Volunteer Ambulance Corps. Dubowsky, of Terryville, first joined PVAC in 1979 as a new Emergency Medical Technician. He rose through the ranks becoming Chief in 2008, retiring from that position in 2010.

PVAC Board of Directors President Dr. Bonnie-Marie Doughty Jenkins said, “It’s very exciting to have Jim back at the helm. He has a lot of experience that he can share with us and help us continue on our path of carrying out our mission.”

Dubowsky retired from the Plymouth Police Department in 2017 as a Detective-Sergeant. He has been teaching an EMT course at Tunxis Community College since 2012.

“When I first started at PVAC, the corps had only started about 12 years prior,” Dubowsky said. “Years ago, there was a different attitude the volunteers had. It’s different today. I’d like to take the current attitude and bring that together with the older one. Things here are good now. I’d like to make them even better.”

The Plymouth Volunteer Ambulance Corps began in 1968. For more information on how you can join, go to
