The original headquarters was established on Furnace Street in Danielson in the current location of The Imperial Room. The first service of its kind in Northeastern Connecticut, K-B Ambulance Corps is the primary emergency medical transport provider for the Town of Killingly.

With our four ambulances and 1 service truck, we average 243 EMS calls a month. In 1980, K-B moved to its current location on Westcott Road, a former body shop retrofitted to meet the Corps needs. In the early 1990’s, the town of Brooklyn formed its own ambulance service with the Mortlake Fire Company.

The Board of Directors of the KB Ambulance Corps, Inc. of Killingly, CT announces that at its March 10, 2021 meeting it appointed Stephen A. Varga as Administrator. Since August 2020, Mr. Varga has served in the role of Acting Administrator in addition to his position of Director of Operations.

In addition to nearly 30 years of EMS service and 6 years at KB Ambulance, Stephen Varga has shown his ability to rise to the challenge when called upon. Through Stephen’s career he has gained a firm understanding of the work and details associated with the operations of KB Ambulance and Paramedic services and the needs of the communities we serve.

In this capacity, he also assisted the Administrator in managing all aspects of EMS operations and business at KB. His commitment helped KB secure and continue a contract since 2017 with Northeast Connecticut Council of Governments (NECCOG) to provide paramedic service to nine towns in the Northeastern Connecticut area, providing vital advanced life support medical care to the communities. During Mr. Varga’s tenure, KB Ambulance also grew beyond the Town of Killingly to provide ambulance service through contracts with the Towns of Pomfret, Eastford and Hampton.
