1 Northwest EMS, Inc. Serving the communities of northwestern Lancaster County Annual Report 2014 We once again thank you for your support of Northwest EMS. We depend on you to close the gap between our operating expenses and the payments we receive for our services. As we look back on 2014, we are elated with the smooth integration of Manheim Veterans Memorial Ambulance with Northwest EMS. We continue to pursue our mission of providing quality emergency medical care around-the-clock to our service areas. Our major project for 2015 is to replace our quarters in the 110-year-old former Manheim fire hall with a new building on West Colebrook Street in Manheim borough. Early returns of pledges show the community is fully behind the project, and we anticipate moving in by the end of this year. Enclosed is our 2014 annual report for your records and information. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions. Respectfully, Dale E. Ressler, Board of Director's Chairman

6 Northwest EMS is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health as both a basic and an advanced (BLS and ALS) life support provider. BLS services are provided by EMT s and include basic care and treatment such as stabilizing fractures, controlling bleeding and other basic treatment and transport services. ALS services include more advanced care and are provided by a Paramedic who can provide cardiac monitoring, IV interventions or other similar advanced care. QRS services are non-transport BLS services that are provided by a single provider and are used for some of our stand-by events. Certification levels for EMS providers in Pennsylvania include: Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Paramedic (EMT-P) Pre-Hospital RN Physicians Our personnel consist of approximately 65 career and 28 volunteer paramedics and EMTs. In addition to our emergency personnel, Northwest EMS sponsors an Explorer Post program where persons 16 and older can join, receive basic first aid training and have opportunities to observe on calls and assist at community events while they consider if EMS is the right vocation for them. Explorer Post members often continue their education and become EMT s and Paramedics. Northwest EMS is a Master Level EMS for Children provider, meeting or exceeding the minimum licensure requirements set forth by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Bureau of EMS for such recognition. Master Level Recognition is voluntary and is a four-part process of approval: 1. The agency must demonstrate that it has, in service, specific pediatric equipment and devices 2. Show proof that all providers have submitted to the Pennsylvania Childline Background Check process 3. The agency must show proof that all providers have successfully completed specific pediatric education, as identified by the Pennsylvania Department of Health 4. The agency must provide a minimum number of educational and preventative outreach opportunities in their communities that focus on the health, welfare and safety of children

7 Lancaster County-Wide Communications (LCWC) is the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) which dispatches all Lancaster County emergency response agencies, including EMS dispatches for Northwest EMS. LCWC dispatched over 76,886 EMS related incidents county-wide in EMS dispatches for Northwest EMS totaled 6,941 in 2014 LCWC uses computer-aided design technology (CAD), as well as Emergency Medical Dispatched (EMD) protocol to determine EMS response criteria. EMS dispatches in Lancaster County are prioritized by Class 1, Class 2, or Class 3 categories. Class 1 emergencies are those calls that the caller has indicated include life-threatening situations requiring ALS dispatch and an emergency response by EMS with the use of emergency warning devices (lights and sirens). Class 2 emergencies are those calls where the caller has indicated an emergency situation, but the patient s condition does not appear to require ALS services, but does indicate an emergent response by EMS is appropriate with the use of emergency warning devices. Class 3 emergencies are those calls where the caller indicates the patient is stable, but in need of an ambulance. Response to Class 3 calls does not require the use of emergency warning devices. Map displays the Northwest EMS response area.

8 Company History Northwest EMS is a regional EMS system made up of several community ambulance services that wanted to be able to provide the highest level of care available while still functioning with a small-town feel. The first merger of our community ambulances took place in 2000, when the Elizabethtown Fire Company Ambulance and the Northwest Advanced Life Support Unit joined forces to become Northwest EMS, Inc., followed by the Bainbridge Fire Company Ambulance and the Maytown-East Donegal Township Ambulance joining in Most recently, the Manheim Veterans Memorial Ambulance Association merged operations with Northwest EMS in These mergers have been successful, in large part, due to the commitment and vision of the members of each of those associations, who have desired to insure that their communities continue to have access to the highest level of prehospital care available. Each merger has been handled with a focus on insuring that the unique needs of each community has been considered and many of the providers of those agencies have remained as career or volunteer staff with Northwest EMS after the merger. Northwest EMS is a company that is built on the belief that to accomplish our mission we must build on the strengths of our founding community ambulance partners and the vision that they had for EMS in the community, as well as continually develop business practices that will allow us to adapt to the changing market place. We believe that our success is measured, not only by our corporate business practices, but also on the satisfaction of our customers and successful patient outcomes. Northwest EMS is recognized throughout South Central Pennsylvania as a professional EMS service that provides excellent EMS response services as well as an agency that is active in community outreach services, public safety education, and prevention services. Our staff takes pride in serving our communities one patient at a time and to make a difference in each and every patient encounter. Our crews were recognized for several cardiac saves in 2014 Northwest EMS partnered with the Pennsylvania Emergency Health Services Council (PEHSC) to produce an educational video on concussion awareness

9 What our patients are saying: "They were all very kind with me and I really appreciated that because I was scared. Thank them all for me." The crew is always so good to my mother. When transporting her, they listen to her concerns and make her feel important. Thank you to your crew - they are the best. "Your staff members are cordial, professional, and a credit to your service." "My 1 year old daughter had a seizure and stopped breathing. They provided excellent service by caring for her and also helping to calm me down. We could not ask for better service. Truly impressed! And very thankful! "This old man is glad to have this good service for our area!!" " Overall care - OUTSTANDING" "The two EMTs that were involved did an excellent job and were very professional. They were very prompt and cordial to me and my wife. The trip to Hershey Medical Center was done with utmost care and explanations to questions were spot on. "My wife and I cannot thank you enough. At our age and living alone, to have someone care, is really appreciated". "Keep up the good work. Looking Ahead: 2015 will bring the much anticipated new County radio system allowing all emergency service disciplines to communicate, as well as a new EMS station in Manheim Borough. Thank you for your continued support! At Northwest EMS we are Serving our Community, one patient at a time.
