DARTMOUTH, MA, ISSUED June 20, 2016…Stat Ambulance Service has been awarded an extension of their municipal 9-1-1 contract with the Town of Dartmouth for another five years.
Mark Haskell, President of Corporate Affairs and Government Relations for Stat/Southcoast EMS, said that the company has been the contracted 9-1-1 responder for the Town for more than 30 years. The contract with the Town existed before the company transitioned ownership to Carol Mansfield of Mattapoisett, making it the first female-owned ambulance firm in the state. With this contact, Stat will have served the Town of Dartmouth for 40 years.
Carol Mansfield, CEO of Stat Ambulance, said, “We value the relationship we have with Dartmouth and are looking forward to another five years of providing 911 service to the town.”
Ms. Mansfield’s tenure in the ambulance industry began in 1987 when she purchased Stat Ambulance. In 2008 she founded Southcoast EMS, which expanded their territory to include 9-1-1 backup for Fall River and New Bedford, and multiple nursing homes in the area. In 2012 she purchased Coastline Ambulance in East Providence. This acquisition doubled the size of the company. Also in 2012, Stat launched Stat Emergency Medical Training which provides EMT training to local area residents. In 2015 she purchased New England Emergency Medical Training Center in East Providence. NEEMT prepares individuals for the EMT & Paramedic exams.
