Willingboro Emergency Medical Services is a combination department that is staffed by highly trained volunteer and per-diem Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs).  The unit is overseen by the Township’s Chief of Department, who is assisted by a full-time Deputy Fire Chief, and two per-diem EMS Captains.  There are 20-30 per-diem EMT's, along with 10-15 volunteer EMT's and EMT Trainees that provide emergency medical care to the residents and visitors of Willingboro.  Our goal is to expand the department to 45 per-diem EMT's.  These dedicated personnel staff at least one ambulance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  The department also staffs a power-shift ambulance Monday – Friday from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm.

The department responds to approximately 3,500 calls for service a year.  The type of incidents it responds to include medical, diabetic, and cardiac emergencies, along with strokes and fall victims.  The department also responds in unison with the Township’s fire department to motor vehicle and pedestrian-motor vehicle accidents, along with structure and vehicle fires and carbon monoxide alarm activations. 

The department is headquartered at the Emergency Services Building at Charleston Road and JFK Way.  All of the department’s personnel and administrative offices are stationed at this building.  The department’s EMTs operate four ambulances, and one command vehicle that are also housed in the building.
