Hanover Twp. Community Ambulance Association has three (3) Pa. Department of Health Licensed Paramedic Level Ambulances. In addition, we also have one (1) Licensed Paramedic Command Unit and one (1) Mass Casualty Trailer.
Our service covers Hanover Township, Sugar Notch, Warrior Run and Laurel Run Boroughs. We also provide Paramedic Level Coverage to the Borough of Ashley.
Hanover Township Community Ambulance Association also has cooperative agreements with Back Mountain Regional, Medic 30 and Mountaintop Ambulance Association, Medic 37. Both organizations lease Paramedics from HTCAA to provide ALS services to their community. This cooperative agreement also allows all three agencies to get bulk pricing on daily supplies need to operate, saving money.
We are a 501(c)3 organization. We receive no tax dollars for the services we provide. We are funded soley on billing for our services and our Subscription Drive.
The Ambulance Association ran its first call on March 31, 1940 at 1:15 am. At that time, it was all volunteer and we responded to approximately 14 calls for service per month. In 1994, the Ambulance Association began implementing a paid staff to crew the ambulance. This guaranteed a crew when needed and reduced response times. From 1940 until 1998, the Ambulance Association provided Basic Life Support (BLS). When more life threatening calls were received, Paramedics had to be called from other agencies outside Hanover Twp. In 1998, The Association upgraded its level of service to Advanced Life Support (ALS). Now, the Ambulance Association could provide Paramedic Level Service without relying on an outside agency. We were given the designation "Medic 9," which we still use today. Currently, the Association repsonds to over 350 calls for help monthly.
