The East Windsor Ambulance Association provides paramedic advanced life support services in the Town of East Windsor and in many surrounding communities through reciprocal mutual aid agreements. With a staff of over 45 Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians utilizing 5 ambulances, and 3 paramedic intercept vehicles (fly cars) we answer over 2400 requests for emergency medical service.
2 ambulances are staffed, each with a Paramedic and an Emergency Medical Technician, 24 hours per day 7 days per week with few exceptions. The Chief of Emergecny Medical Services staffs a paramedic intercept fly car during week day shifts and as needed during other time periods. Off duty crews are called in during peak call volume periods. This provides the citizens of East Windsor exceptional medical coverage.
84% of our emergency response times, from dispatch to arrival, are less than 12 minutes in duration. Our most serious emergencies such as cardiac arrests and motor vehicle accidents receive the response of both of our ambulance crews and the Chief of Service. This response would include 3 Paramedics and 2 Emergency Medical Technicians, ensuring the best possible outcome for those critically ill or injured.
The entire paramedic service is provided at little cost to the taxpayers of the Town of East Windsor. The community provides, at no cost, a modest facility, environmental utilities, and a communications network. The town provides no other financial assistance. The association is responsible for all other costs such as liability and workers compensation insurance, vehicle fuel, vehicle and equipment purchases, information technology systems, medical supplies, vehicle repairs, and all employee payroll.
