Since 1975 the Central Park Medical Unit has provided free life-saving emergency medical care in and around New York's Central Park.
CPMU has never and will never send a patient a bill.
CPMU boasts a fleet of four state of the art custom ambulances, an all terrain vehicle, an emergency response fly car, and a fleet of emergency response bikes. Our staff of volunteers consists of more than 150 diverse and compassionate volunteers whose backgrounds range from professional EMTs, paramedics, nurses and doctors to business executives, attorneys and active and retired law enforcement personnel, to name a few. CPMU has no paid staff. Our volunteer members have an intensive and expert knowledge of Central Park’s geography which allows us to provide swift and expert care in Central Park with one of the fastest response times in New York State. We hope you and your family will never need our services, but if you do, isn’t it comforting to know that your fellow New Yorkers are there for you? Your donation of time or funds helps keep our service FREE to all Central Park visitors.
