During EMS Week, we will be honoring our EMS professionals and the people behind the scenes who support them. We will do this by sharing some of their stories with you, to show you that EMS isn’t defined by ambulances with their lights and sirens blaring.  The faces behind the masks are what makes up EMS. The voice on the other end of a phone call.  The healthcare professionals, the caregivers, the consolers, the hand-holders, the managers and all the others who stand together for our community.

This Is EMS.

Who Is EPAS??
We are East Pennsboro Ambulance Service, Inc.
Beginning in 1949 ambulance service in the township was provided by local fire companies.  In 1987 the corporation now known as East Pennsboro Ambulance Service, Inc. was formed.  In 2002 EPAS began operating independently from the fire companies, being governed by their own board of directors.

Over the years EPAS has seen many changes, not only within the organization but outside as well. Coverage areas have expanded.  The need for non-emergency transportation services has increased.  Our staffing requirements are continually evaluated and updated as necessary. To date we employ 12 full time employees, which include management, office, EMTs and Para-transit staff.  We also have 10 part time employees as well as volunteers...all who make EPAS what it is today.

We look forward to continued growth, both within the organization as well as within the township and to being able to serve our community well into the future.

What Is EMS?
EMS is a part of a system that provide emergency medical care to sick/injured individuals with transport to a local ER for further care.

There are 6 points as depicted in the Star of Life...
Its the voice on the other end of the phone when you call 911.
That voice is then on the other side of the radio relaying information for the appropriate response.  That voice is the life line of EMS.  That voice is what keeps those responding individuals safe.
Its the EMTs, Paramedics, Firefighters, Police Officers...all who come together with one thing in common....to help our fellow man. Its the care the patient receives on scene and in transit.  Its the transfer of care to hospital staff.

We hold hands. We comfort. We listen. We care.  We see the beginning of life, and we see the end of life.  We are witness to some of the most personal private moments in the lives of our patients.

We are a close knit chosen family of individuals all coming together for one goal.  That goal is YOU!

What is EMS Week?

EMS Week began in 1974 when President Gerald Ford authorized a week to celebrate EMS practitioners for the important work they do in our communities.  Over the past year, the pandemic has given people a small glimpse of the vital role they actually play.  Their sacrifice, dedication and commitment to serving their communities has now, more than ever, earned them this recognition and celebration.  

EMS Week is celebrated during the third full week in May.  We look forward to sharing our celebration with you!
