[ARCHIVED] EMS reports continuing service increase

The Cranberry Township Emergency Medical Service – an independent organization which was formed as an ambulance unit of the community’s volunteer fire company more than 50 years ago – is today a professional organization with 31 employees and 16 volunteers, including its Board of Directors.  It is also Cranberry’s officially designated emergency medical transport service for 9-1-1 calls in the Township as well as a provider of non-emergency medical transportation, home health monitoring, household safety instruction, child car seat installation, and training in CPR, AED and first aid.  At its February 23 meeting, Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors heard a report from EMS Executive Director Jeff Kelly about the current state of the service, which experienced a 4% growth in calls between 2015 and 2016.  The service is financed through medical insurance reimbursements, patient billing, annual subscriptions, grants and gifts – not by taxpayers.  However, declining revenues from all sources remain a challenge to EMS services nationwide.
