Monroe County has setup EMS stations for residents in need of oxygen after strong winds knocked out power for thousands in the area.

Patients who have lost power and oxygen equipment functionality, and cannot reach their oxygen provider, may go to one of the following locations:

• Perinton Ambulance – 1400 Turk Hill Rd, Fairport, NY 14450

• Gates Ambulance – 1001 Elmgrove Rd, Gates, NY 14624

• Greece Ambulance – 867 Long Pond Rd, Rochester, NY 14612

Residents are encouraged to bring their oxygen equipment to the stations whenever possible. Oxygen equipment and supplies are also available for residents who do not have their own.

Residents are also encouraged to check-up on friends and family who use oxygen equipment, to confirm their safety.

If there is an emergency need, residents should call 911 to receive further information.
