Southbury Paramedic Ashley Piper
Southbury, CT - November 8, 2019 is now a landmark in the 66-year history of the Southbury Ambulance Association (SAA), as Paramedic Ashley Piper took the helm as SAA transitions to an Advanced Life Support (ALS) service.
SAA is thrilled to have Ashley as the first SAA Paramedic, as she brings both her Paramedic skills and her familiarity with the geographical layout of the town. Ashley began staffing through Vintech Management Service in June of 2014 at SAA, providing Basic Life Support as an EMT while furthering her education in Paramedic school.
SAA President Geralyn Hoyt began the lengthy process in 2017 to obtain all necessary approvals and equipment to elevate the response to the paramedic level. Her efforts proved worthwhile, as going forward the SAA will posssess an in-town paramedic available to the Southbury community. The SAA heard and listened to Southbury residents as they were adamant about having an in-town medic.
President Hoyt would like to thank her employees and residents for their continued support and words of encouragement. Within moments of the program going online as a Paramedic Unit, Paramedic Piper completed two Advanced Life Support calls back to back!
Congratulations to Ashley on her new position, and also to SAA for their long pursued accomplishment of becoming an ALS level provider to the town.
