Town of Northampton
Town of Northampton

Welcome to the Town of Northampton website.  This site enables people to find out about what is happening in and around town.

Located in Fulton County in Upstate New York, along the Great Sacandaga Lake, you can find lots to do -- whether it's boating, fishing, hiking, swimming, camping, or nearby cross country skiing.  For avid hikers, the Adirondack Trail runs through the Town of Northampton. We have one of New York State's finest State Park Campgrounds. We also offer a summer program for kids and youth groups at our local churches.  Winter time is full of snowmobiling, ice fishing, ice races on the lake, and many other fun activites.  The Town of Northampton is truly an all-season place to have fun or just to relax and get away from it all.

We are easy to find.  Just take NYS Route 30 North off the New York State Thruway and follow the signs.

Re:  Emergency Medical Services Study Community Survey



For Immediate Release


The Town of Northampton is conducting a comprehensive review of our current emergency medical services.  We are looking for input from the community served by the Northampton Ambulance Service. 

To assist in that process, we are conducting an Online Survey of the Residents, Taxpayers and Business Operators in the Towns of Northampton, Hope and Benson as well as Northville. We invite you to take a totally confidential online survey which is seeking your input about emergency medical services in our community. This survey is being conducted by Ron Graner, Public Safety Consultant.

We all deeply appreciate the time and efforts the dedicated members of the Northampton Ambulance Service give in service to the people of our community. We are proud that our ambulance service has remained strong and viable during this difficult period for EMS providers in Fulton County.  This survey will help us understand what you view as your NAS’s primary strengths and weaknesses. It will provide an insight of your opinions on what opportunities you see for improvement and what threats you see that will impact the ability of our local EMS services to serve this community. 

Your views, ideas and feedback are important to help guide our strategic planning efforts as we all strive to assure continued efficient, effective and safe delivery of emergency medical services in our community. Our emergency medical responders will each be requested to take a separate survey that will provide us with their views and insights into the issues they face in service to our community.

To take the online survey for residents, taxpayers and business operators please log on at:

This survey will be available online until Noon on August 20, 2019

If you have any questions please call us at 518 863-4040.  I have appointed Councilman Bill Gritsavage as coordinator of this project.

Thank you in advance for participating in this survey. Your input will aid in the development of a comprehensive strategic plan to assure effective, efficient and safe delivery of emergency medical services.
