Emergency medical services in the northwestern portion of Lancaster County are provided by Northwest EMS, a non-profit organization. Northwest EMS has operated at a deficient over the past few years. Unless the crisis is addressed, Northwest EMS will be insolvent in a few years.
In May 2022, Conoy Township passed a resolution approving the exploration of forming a Regional Emergency Services Authority along with other Northwest Lancaster County Municipalities. It is the hope that this formation will address the challenges that jeopardize emergency services in our community and fulfill the statutory requirement for municipalities to provide EMS Services.
