THE STORY:

CPMU has been providing dedicated emergency medical services to Central Park since 1975.  

We work in very unique place.  Central Park is a tourist attraction that draws millions of visitors each year from around the world.  But it is also a neighborhood playground, a bike path, a ballfield, or just a peaceful retreat for those who share this city with us.  When emergencies happen in Central Park - a broken arm on the swings, chest pain and shortness of breath during that morning run - you will find our EMTs and paramedics providing rapid, professional emergency medical care.

We don’t do it for money.  Everyone at Central Park Medical Unit is a volunteer and the unit is a non-profit organization that never sends a bill for its services.

We do this work because we have a special privilege.  It is the privilege of being able to help other people, often when they need it the most.  And we have a special mission - our dedication to New York City’s crown jewel, Central Park.

But now we need your help.

On November 20th, 2014, fire tore through the garage where two of our ambulances were stored.  Both vehicles were totally destroyed.  The ambulances were insured, but insurance only covers a small portion of what it will cost to purchase and equip replacements.  Your contribution will help make up the difference.  Our dedicated volunteers are ready to keep doing the good work that they have been doing for more than 35 years.  And your generosity will help us fulfill our mission to keep Central Park safe for years to come.
