Emergency Services was highlighted for a portion of Monday evening's scheduled Upper Providence Township Board of Supervisors meeting. Chief of Fire and Emergency Services Dan Kerrigan provided a look at the response and efforts put forth by Fire, EMS, Police, Emergency Management, and Public Works personnel during the flooding as a result of the remnants from Hurricane Ida.

Following the update of Hurricane Ida impacts Chief Kerrigan, with the assistance of his staff, made the formal recommendation for Friendship Ambulance to enter an agreement with the Township placing EMS units inside the currently under construction fire station on Black Rock Road.

Monday evening's recommendation has been over a five year process involving countless hours of preparation, deliberation, presentation involving representatives from Upper Providence Township and the three EMS services currently serving Township. We thank Upper Providence Township for this opportunity and trust to continue serving the residents and visitors to the community. We also thank our EMS counterparts at Trappe Ambulance and Lower Providence Ambulance for their partnership and we look forward to working alongside their leadership and providers continuing to deliver premier pre-hospital care to not only Upper Providence but also the surrounding areas.

As Chief Kerrigan alluded during the meeting, which can be viewed via the link below, Friendship Ambulance has committed to placing at least one (1) Advanced Life Support unit in the transport 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with an additional EMS unit staffed for approximately 12 hours a day. Our team will work in conjunction with the leadership in Upper Providence to ensure a smooth and seamless transition as we move to this new chapter in the history of Friendship Ambulance and Royersford Fire Department.
