Who We Are

Penndel-Middletown Emergency Squad, a non-profit, emergency ambulance service, was incorporated in 1959 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Located in Middletown Township, it serves residents of that municipality and the neighboring Boroughs of Hulmeville, Langhorne, Langhorne Manor and Penndel - an area encompassing more than 25 square miles.

The volunteer and career members of Penndel-Middletown Emergency Squad are proud to serve the community "24/7" by providing emergency medical services, disaster support, and specialty bariatric transport services to the
residents of Middletown Township, its surrounding boroughs and, through mutual aid, most of Lower Bucks County. Penndel-Middletown provides services from two stations, staffed by EMT's and paramedics, who answered more than 5,100 calls for service in 2016.

Penndel-Middletown prides itself on always maintaining the most up-to-date and advanced equipment and medical care for our patients. Our EMS providers have access to the latest in treatment options for patients with all types of medical and trauma emergencies. We are involved in cutting-edge programs through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Bureau of EMS, involving advanced medications and critical treatment techniques. Our membership was very excited to have received the American Heart Association Mission Lifeline Gold Performance Achievement Award in 2016. This award recognizes the rapid, coordinated, outstanding care that our EMT's and paramedics provide to patients suffering a heart attack.

The Squad continues to provide regular, ongoing training for our EMT's and paramedics to assure the highest competency and quality care. We work closely with our fellow first responders (fire department and police
personnel), coordinating our efforts to guarantee high-quality CPR is provided to patients who suffer cardiac arrest, and to ensure the rapid deployment of the heroin-reversal drug, naloxone. The organization has taken a leadership role in Bucks County in training and equipping our members for "active shooter" events. Several members have received advanced training in Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC). This training allows for better integration with police during an "active shooter" situation and has been proven to save lives. Penndel-Middletown also made the bold decision to provide body armor (ballistic vests) for all EMT's and paramedics to enhance the safety of our members as they respond to emergencies.

We thank you for the privilege to serve as your EMS care provider. We look forward to continuing to provide excellent care to the members of our community.
