Response areas are defined by the call volume, geography, and population of participating municipalities. In general, a response area may cover a portion of a municipality, a single municipality or it may cover several neighboring municipalities. During peak times, crews will be staged at locations that will allow them to respond quickly to 911 calls. Additional crews may be added in times of adverse weather and high call volume. In other words, ambulances will be placed in high demand areas at high demand times.
Future plans will be guided by the "Gold Standard" of medical care adopted by the Board of Chosen Commissioners.
