The American Legion Ambulance Service Station 64 provides professionally trained, rapid-response medical services for the Town of Smyrna. The station always welcomes new members and volunteers; please fill out the form HERE if you're interested in volunteering with the station.
To provide comprehensive, skillful, cost-effective pre-hospital emergency and non-emergency health care to the Smyrna and Clayton communities, and surrounding areas, while continuing to evolve with ever changing health care needs.
The American Legion Ambulance Service was founded in 1924 by members of American Legion Post #14, all who served as volunteers. It became the first American Legion ambulance service in the world; sick and injured individuals no longer had to travel by train to hospitals in Wilmington, Dover, Milford, and beyond. Today, Station 64 operates four Basic Life Support Units with both volunteer and paid staff, responding to approximately 4,000 calls a year.
Station 64 is actively involved in the community. They host CPR/AED certification classes throughout the year (check their website for upcoming classes), and host family-friendly events such as paint night, Spring Fling Eggstravaganza, and shrimp feasts. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for event information.
