What is the Countywide EMS Response Plan?

Luzerne County's "Countywide EMS Response Plan" was drafted by a committee of stakeholders and approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Health (PA DOH) in October of 2016 to address the response times of both BLS (Basic Life Support) units and ALS (Advanced Life Support) units who are under the auspices of Luzerne County 9-1-1.  The committee, with the assistance of Emergency Medical Services of Northeast Pennsylvania (EMS of NEPA), consists of both volunteer and paid agencies from all areas of Luzerne County including County 9-1-1 officials.
