Safety and Outreach

In keeping with the mission of the organization, the clinicians and nursing staff of the EMMC Emergency Department see themselves as a resource for the community. We participate in public health messages, injury prevention programs, emergency response training and education programs, and other outreach efforts.

EMMC Emergency nurses also participate in programs at local schools and safety fairs, and provide medical care for the annual Folk Festival on the Bangor waterfront. We offer injury prevention services through our Attention 2 Prevention program, and bicycle helmet fitting. For more information on any of these programs, please call 207-973-7920. We also have child passenger safety technicians who are nationally certified to check and fit car seats. For more information or to make an appointment for a car seat check, please call 207-973-8954.
