The ambulance service has been certified by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and is officially called Oxford County Emergency Medical Services (Oxford County EMS). It is division of the Department of Public Health and Emergency Services.

Fire Services

The Woodstock Fire Department has evolved from the traditional service that strictly fights fires to a fire service of great diversity. The department has gradually assumed more responsibilities to such a degree that it now provides a wide range of services beyond fire protection. These services include extrication, all types of rescue, emergency medical assistance, hazardous material protection, fire code enforcement, fire investigations, pre-incident planning, carbon monoxide responses, fire hydrant maintenance and public relations. The Woodstock Fire Department is a well trained full-time emergency response team dedicated to providing quick and professional service to the citizens of Woodstock in their time of need.
