The men and women who serve as volunteer Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) are caring, courageous town residents who lead active lives and still find time to give back to their community. They live their lives like each and every one of us. They are teachers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, business people and local storeowners. When they get home, they spend, as much time as possible with their families just to show them how much they love them. Yet, somehow, these men and women are different. They are special. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, they make the lives of all Wilton town residents safer and more secure...without ever asking for a thank you or compensation.
They are our "hometown heroes."

The Child Safety Seat Inspection program assists parents in protecting their children by providing certified child safety seat technicians from the Wilton Emergency Squad, Inc.. Wilton EMS holds monthly installation and inspections events. During these events, technicians inspect, instruct and correct improperly installed child safety seats.. Each inspection takes approximately 30 minutes and is free of charge; however, donations are accepted. The donations will be used to fund the operating costs of the inspection program. To limit waiting periods for families, appointments are necessary.
In addition to the monthly events, individual inspection and installations appointments may be arranged. These appointments may be scheduled with and of our technicians.
