A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT

Michael Aliano – President/CEO

It is hard to put into words what the men and women of American Ambulance sacrifice in order for them to be the professionals they are, the time spent away from their families including hours on the job and in continuing education. They often find themselves on the road when everyone else is told not to be and they do this nights, weekends and holidays. I hope you appreciate them as much as I do. The men and women of American Ambulance are truly Dedicated, Professional People, Committed to Excellence, Caring for You.

On this day 50 years ago, June 24, 1972, Ron Aliano founded American Ambulance to provide essential life-saving services to the residents of Eastern Connecticut. Last week we celebrated our 50th ...anniversary with our team members who remain dedicated to Ron’s vision and mission, committed to excellence in the delivery of patient care. Thank you for 50 years of service to our community, we are proud of the great things you do every day!

In 2009, American Ambulance received permission from CT OEMS to change the exterior vehicle design and labeling from the federal specifications and standards for ambulances to Battenburg Livery. We ...were the first in the state to transition to this look in the interest of safety of our patients, our team members and the community at large. We introduced Battenburg Livery as a safety standard in our vehicle design in 2010. These markings are a distinctive checkerboard pattern developed in the United Kingdom in the 1990s that maximize the vehicles' visibility in either in daylight or under headlights at night.

1983 saw the groundbreaking ceremony for our current location at One American Way. The apparatus bay was completed first in 1985 and had to accommodate the entire team temporarily until the office ...section of the building was complete in 1986. The building overlooks the Thames River and is considered a modern-day landmark in the city of Norwich.

Since day one, American Ambulance has been committed to the people we serve, the communities we work within, and to our team members. By the 1970’s, the paramedic profession was in its infancy with... only a few major cities in the U.S. having paramedic programs. The paramedic concept has roots in the military, a method of providing advanced medical care in the field would lead to calls for a similar level of care in civilian life. The 1970s television show ‘Emergency!’ was how most Americans first learned what a paramedic was. In 1983, American Ambulance hosted the first paramedic program in Eastern CT with 13 participants, pictured in the first photo. American Professional Educational Services, Inc. was founded in 1996 in response to an increased demand for community CPR classes and soon expanded to include Emergency Medical Technician programs. The next 1970s era photo shows just how far we have come with uniforms for our crew.

Modern EMS (Emergency Medical Services) is a highly developed system, from the way calls for aid are received and dispatched, to the advanced medical care provided on scene by the EMS crew. This is ...followed by rapid transport to a hospital equipped to care for the sick or injured patient. However, it has not always been this way. The national philosophy until the mid-20th century remained focused on patient care beginning when the patient arrived at the hospital. Though some state legislation started to require ambulances to be equipped with basic medical supplies, as well as requiring the ambulance personnel to be trained in basic first aid. With the advancements of mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and closed-chest cardiac massage, this highlighted the importance of early medical intervention and its impact on survivability rates. At the time, the hearse, station-wagon or limousine style ambulance was common. But it was soon realized the need for an increase in the size of the patient care compartment, to make room for the patient, equipment, and most importantly the life-saving crew. Here’s a look back at some of American Ambulance’s early ambulances.

In celebration of Juneteenth, Norwich resident Ben Haith was recently recognized for creating the Juneteenth flag which has now become the national symbol for this holiday. The star at the center of ...the flag represents Texas the Lone Star State, where slaves in Galveston were told on June 19, 1865, that they were free, over two years after the Emancipation Proclamation. The star is surrounded by a nova, a bursting star rising up over the horizon to represent the promise of the future and displays the red, white, and blue of the American flag. Visit Norwich today, June 18, for two Juneteenth events. At 11 AM, join Castle Church for the unveiling of the Jubilee Park Mural at 4 Broadway, Norwich. The mural, by artist Ben Keller, is part of the transformation of the park featuring two local black history leaders. James Lindsey Smith escaped slavery and become a successful businessman, minister, and community leader in Norwich. Sarah Harris Fayerweather, the first black student at Prudence Crandall’s school in Canterbury, went on to become a “conductor” on the UnderGround Railroad. Then at 2 PM, join the Norwich NAACP Branch and Global City Norwich for a Juneteenth Celebration in downtown Norwich with music, food, and activities at the Palace Lot at 241 Main Street, Norwich.

American Ambulance Service, Inc. was established on June 24, 1972, by founder Ron Aliano. As we celebrate our 50th Anniversary, we are proud to continue to provide the highest quality EMS care today.... Ron started with two used ambulances and the operation was run out of the back of a local service station in Norwich until American moved to 101 West Main in Norwich with a fleet of 7 ambulances. Ron is seen in this 1976 photo hosting an Open House at that location.

On June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress while writing the Articles of Confederation, passed a resolution stating that “the flag of the United States be 13 stripes, alternate red and ...white,” and that “the union be 13 stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.” On June 14, we celebrate Flag Day and preserve the traditions, history, pride, and respect that are due our nation's symbol, Old Glory.
