While its station serving northwestern Greenwich undergoes a facilities upgrade, GEMS EMTs and two ambulances have been temporarily relocated to 'Wick's Pre and Lower School campus.
“Brunswick was happy and eager to answer the GEMS need for temporary support,” Head of School Thomas W. Philip said.
Ambulances will be parked in two specially designated spaces outside the Mehra Natatorium on Edwards Campus at 1252 King Street. The ambulances will answer calls by exiting onto King Street through the North Gate and returning through the South Gate.
The school has put the following safety procedures in place:
The North Gate is “Exit Only,” as always.
No parking is allowed along the north driveway, either on or off the roadway.
Keep well clear of the designated parking spots in order to ensure that the ambulances can get to the drive.
The permanent GEMS station for the area is located near the site of the town’s Griffith E. Harris Golf Course, on King Street, just north of Brunswick.
The goal of the temporary relocation is to complete renovations at the permanent site as soon as possible.
