Did you know that next week is National EMS Week?

In 1974, President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week to celebrate EMS practitioners and the important work they do in our nation's communities. National Emergency Medical Services Week brings together local communities and medical personnel to honor the dedication of those who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services of medicine's frontline.

Midstate EMS departments continue to recruit among omicron surge

As we approach the 2-year mark of the COVID-19 Pandemic, STEMS has faced the challenge of EMS staffing. We have been fortunate to maintain consistent EMS coverage to our communities. Many EMS agencies in Pennsylvania continue to struggle however. Regardless of where you live - we ask that you support your local ambulance service and encourage your local and state government officials to take action.

As we enter year two of the pandemic, staffing and mental health concerns continue for EMS departments. Two local departments say right now, they’re maintaining their staffing levels but says…

A couple days ago A-Platoon handled an MVA in the first due which resulted in the destruction of a resident's mailbox. Yesterday, the A-Platoon was back on-duty and notice that the mailbox was still damaged. The crew made contact with the homeowner and found that the homeowner did not physically or financially have the means to replace the mailbox.

So the crews took it upon themselves to purchase and replace the mailbox!

Congratulations to the 2021 Craig Webb Memorial Award winners for outstanding public service. The winners: - Sgt. Todd Witmer (police) - Kenneth McCann Jr. (fire) - Robert Smith (EMS) Dauphin County is fortunate to have such selfless public servants who, along with their families, sacrifice every day to keep us safe.

Susquehanna Township EMS just raised its base pay scale last week for EMTs from $12.50 to $15 an hour. I’ve reported for years on how payment from insurance providers hasn’t gone up in a long time, but some ambulance companies are now looking more closely at their finances to be able to raise wages.
Tonight the members of Progress as well as Rescue Fire Company #37, Susquehanna Township EMS, and Susquehanna Township Police were requested to assist at the Susquehanna Township High School to send the Class Of 2020 out with “Bang”.
Hoffman Ford and our friends at Chick-fil-A Lindle Road were honored to continue our weekly mission of supporting and thanking our local first responders and health care providers during these challenging times! Today we were able to thank and recognize some of our nurses and doctors from UPMC Pinnacle as well as our first responders from our neighboring townships, Susquehanna Township – Dauphin County, PA & West Hanover Township Administration with a complimentary lunch from Chick-fil-A. Thank you to our dedicated group of first responders at Susquehanna Township Police, Susquehanna Township EMS, Progress Fire 32, Rescue Fire Company #37 & West Hanover Volunteer Fire Company 36. Your service to our community is greatly appreciated! A special thank you to Chief George Drees and Chief Steve Smedley for helping to coordinate this lunch! #DauphinCountyGoesBlue
Thank YOU Susquehanna Township EMS for all of the fantastic and tireless work that you do for our community! Everyone please join us in praying for these brave men and women who are serving on the front lines!
Around the country, first responders are preparing for the coronavirus. They are concerned about a looming shortage of masks. And if cases surge, it may be hard for ambulance companies to get other necessary supplies, says Susquehanna Township EMS Director Matt Baily. “We’re hoping we don’t need anything, but we’re planning as though we’re definitely going to need all of it,” he says.
