Parsippany-Troy Hills Township Paid Ambulance Service
Par-Troy Emergency Medical Services, inspected and licensed by the New Jersey Department Health and Senior Services, was established by the Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills to provide prompt, professional emergency medical services to residents and visitors of the township. Our municipal ambulance service staffs one ambulance, with two state certified Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT), 6 days a week, operating Monday through Saturday, from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. Par-Troy EMS is responsible for providing service township-wide.
In 2006, Par-Troy EMS responded to 1,862 Calls and since inception, has responded to over 8,200 calls. Par-Troy EMS is stationed at the Parsippany Community Center, located at 1130 Knoll Road, in the Lake Hiawatha section of the township.
The emergency medical service staff is CPR certified and EMT certified by the State, having successfully completed a 120-hour course. Dispatched by the Parsippany Police Department, they work in conjunction with the township Police Department, Parsippany's two volunteer ambulance squads, six fire districts and Rescue and Recovery Unit to provide any means necessary to get our patients treated and transported to the closest appropriate hospitals.
Life Threatening Situation Response
In life threatening situations such as chest pain or difficulty breathing, a mobile intensive care unit (MICU), staffed by two Paramedics, may also respond to provide advanced life support. Comparable to a mobile emergency room, MICUs are hospital- based units, providing regional emergency service, in cooperation with municipal ambulances. Paramedics are in contact with an emergency room physician to provide the most appropriate treatment. In Parsippany, our primary mobile intensive care units are Medic 52, based out of Saint Clare's Hospital and MIC-11/MIC-12 from Morristown Memorial Hospital.
