As the Gloucester County Emergency Medical Services (GCEMS) celebrates its fifth anniversary, the regionalized service has more to celebrate than just longevity.

After its start in 2007, Freeholder Robert Damminger announced in a press release that GCEMS currently holds a systemwide average response time of under six minutes. This average response time is more than three minutes faster than the Commissions of Accreditation of Ambulance Services' average target response time at eight minutes and 59 seconds. 

“Regionalization filled the void in staffing, enhanced the infrastructure, and improved training,” said Damminger. “Best of all, regionalization has allowed for the strategic placement of crews to call volume and ensured that the closest ambulance is dispatched to the patient.” 

GCEMS comprises sixteen municipalities, including West Deptford. 

There are currently 11 Emergency Medical Service (EMS) stations—22 ambulance and multiple support vehicles—that make up GCEMS. 

“Our staff goes above and beyond and performs to the highest standards for quality and excellence,” said Giuseppe 'Joe' Chila, freeholder deputy director and liaison to GCEMS.
