Here at Town Hall >> A safe place to dispose of your unwanted prescription medicine. Citizens can drop off not needed or expired prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs at a new drug disposal facility. The new disposal container is permanently located at the Shandaken Town Hall 7209 Rt. 28 Shandaken. Citizens are encouraged to use this new facility to dispose of drugs. Placing drugs in the trash or flushing them into the sewer contaminates the environment and is unsafe. Eliminating these drugs from your home removes the possibility they can be used inappropriately.

Please contact Shandaken Ambulance with this life saving information!

688-7188 – email: car78@shandakenambulance.org

We would like to compile a confidential list of locations where our paramedics can transmit cardiac info to receiving hospitals – while in transit with patients.  This can be done by momentarily stopping in front of the business or home and connecting to the extender from the cardiac monitor while still in the Ambulance.
