On June 2, 1992, Stamford Firefighters ended a long-standing tradition of providing BLS ambulance service to citizens of Stamford. On this date, Stamford, Glenbrook, and Springdale firefighters as well as members of Stamford Ambulance Corp turned over their ambulances to the newly formed Stamford EMS, Inc., a spin-off of the former paramedic fly-car service, Stamford EMS Foundation, Inc.. The new service provided for one Emergency Medical Technician and one Paramedic on each of four ambulances spread across the City during the day. At night, the ambulance stationed at the Saint Josephs Hospital changed over to a fly-car.
