5 Company History Northwest EMS was created on January 1, 2000, through the merger of the Elizabethtown Fire Company Ambulance and the Northwest Advanced Life Support Unit (NWALSU). Prior to the merger, the fire company ambulance, which originated in 1947, provided basic life support services to the Elizabethtown community, while NWALSU, originated in about 1980, provided advanced life support services. The merger allowed those organizations to more effectively serve the community and jointly provide basic and advanced EMS services. The new corporate name for the merged agencies became Northwest EMS, Inc. In 2004, the Bainbridge Fire Company Ambulance and the Maytown-East Donegal Township Ambulance, both volunteer basic life support services, chose to merge with Northwest. And on October, 1, 2013, the Manheim Veterans Memorial Ambulance Association, located in Manheim Borough, joined forces and also merged with NWEMS. The combined organizations, operating as Northwest EMS, now serve residents across northwestern Lancaster County and portions of southern Lebanon and Dauphin Counties. The primary response area served by Northwest EMS totals square miles in Lancaster County with additional square miles in Dauphin and Lebanon Counties.

6 Services: Services include: Emergency, 911 dispatched services: Advanced life support (ALS) services Basic life support (BLS) services Quick Response Services (QRS), basic life support non-transport services Mass Casualty Trailer (MCI) services Northwest EMS also provides non-emergency medical transportation services: BLS ambulance transportation services Wheelchair transportation services Community Outreach: Northwest EMS places a high priority on outreach to the community in the form of education and prevention. Examples include: Providing CPR & Hands-Only CPR instruction to the community Providing Basic First Aid certification to the community Assisting service groups in obtaining merit badge achievements Providing stand-by services to sporting events and public gatherings Providing continuing education courses to EMS personnel (Continuing Education courses are open to any EMS provider, including EMS personnel from neighboring agencies) Providing education and prevention services, upon request to schools, youth sports leagues, community groups, etc., on topics such as concussion awareness, sports injuries and basic response/treatment, etc. Hosting Camp Lady Bug Hosting educational tours to elementary, pre-school groups and others Presenting a Mock DUI/Prom Promise demonstration to local high schools that includes a variety of safety messages for teen drivers on the dangers of distracted driving, driving under the influence and other risky behaviors

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 75,975 EMS related incidents in EMS dispatches for Northwest EMS totaled 5,805, while EMS dispatches for our Manheim communities totaled 1,125; bringing our agency total for 2013 to 6,930. LCWC uses computer-aided design technology (CAD), as well as Emergency Medical Dispatched (EMD) protocol to determine 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. During % of emergency dispatches were Class 1 (requiring ALS services) 47% were class 2 or 3, (requiring BLS services)

8 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.
