If the idea of getting out of a warm bed at two o’clock in the morning, in the middle of December, or going into a place where everyone else is going the other way, wearing 40 pounds of heavy pants, coat, boots, and other gear in 90 degree weather, or standing in the middle of an intersection blocking the only way motorists know how to get to work and they, in turn, questioning your paternal background, appeals to you…have we got the job for you!!!
The pay and benefits are always predictable…ZERO. Yet the rewards can be priceless, like the feeling you get, after bringing a person back to life from the brink using an AED, or pulling someone out alive, from a pile of rubble following a massive explosion.
Please visit our Fire Station on Postal Road, near the Old Post Office, on Monday Nights and ask for an application. We will be happy to oblige. We sincerely hope that we never have to visit you at home, in your workplace, or in your car on “Official Business,” but we take pride in being ready, willing and able to do so if the need arises.
NREMS provides both basic and advanced life support. The advanced life support is a single tier service, which means that the ambulances are staffed with registered nurses, paramedics, EMTs, and First Responders.
NREMS has established a sub-station in the Township and will communicate directly with Lehigh County 911. Residents and businesses will continue to Dial 911 for emergency ambulance service.
In accordance with the Township’s Agreement with NREMS, all residents of the Township and their families residing in the home will be provided with free emergency and medically necessary non-emergency ambulance service. Township residents pay no dues to NREMS; however, voluntary donations are excluded from the terms of the Agreement. In essence, the Agreement means that Township residents are subscribers with NREMS.
Should NREMS transport you, a resident or a member of your family, an invoice may be forwarded to you for submittal to your insurance company or there may be a written request from NREMS for you to provide them with your insurance information for their direct billing to your insurance company.
If you have no insurance to cover the services, any invoice or information request should be referred to NREMS indicating same. In no event; however, should a Township resident make personal payment of a bill to NREMS, but keep in mind that NREMS is entitled to any and all insurance monies.
