Pocono Mountain Regional is an EMS organization that is on the path to many new and exciting opportunities. Our Operational Management Team includes a Coordinator of Operations, ALS Supervisor and BLS Supervisor.
We are privileged to have a team that includes very skilled and dedicated Full-Time and Part-time Field and Office employees, including approximately 60 EMT’s and Paramedics. We process our own billing for services with 2 employees that work in our billing department. We have an accountant and 1 additional person that functions in the role of executive secretary and to assist with subscriptions.
On a monthly basis this represents approximately 450 calls per month to our primary service area. We also respond to surrounding communities when their primary service is not available and this monthly call volume can amount to as many as 30 additional monthly 911 emergency service requests. Operationally we pride ourselves on having the resources and capabilities to meet all of the challenges of our primary communities and secondarily to outlying communities during their time of need.
Our coverage area includes approximately 42,500 residents not counting the influx of tourism traffic that the area experiences year round. We have experienced a steadily increasing request for our services over the years.
We provide the following services to the coverage area:
We are the only ambulance company in Monroe County that has the capabilities of transmitting a patient’s 12 lead EKG from the field directly to the Hospital. By transmitting a 12 lead EKG from the field to the hospital this gives the hospital time to prepare for the arrival of the patient and for immediate transfer to the cardiac-catherization room for immediate life-saving measures to be implemented.
