Harvard Ambulance Service

Harvard Ambulance Service (HAS) is a volunteer-operated, Massachusetts State-certified, basic life-support ambulance service. Since 1972, the service has been committed to providing prompt, high quality prehospital emergency care to the Harvard residents and visitors. The service currently has over 50 members, is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and responds to over 350 emergency calls per year. Each EMT on the service is trained to the highest standard and uses the best equipment available. HAS provides care ranging from patient assessment, to administering medications, to treating traumatic injuries, to CPR and defibrillation. In addition to responding to emergencies, HAS also provides standby medical coverage at community events including road races, festivals, and town meeting.

HAS is a volunteer, paid-per call service. Director Jason Cotting and Deputy Director Steven Beckman manage HAS and report to Harvard Selectmen regarding our operation. The HAS directors, in consultation with HAS members, appoint a management team responsible for specific activities such as training and community outreach.
