About Central Bucks EMS

Who is Central Bucks EMS?


Central Bucks EMS was established in 1959 as a non-profit volunteer ambulance company to provide emergency medical care to our growing community. We were originally founded in 1951 as Central Bucks Fire and Rescue Unit to be changed later in 1959 and officially chartered as Central Bucks Ambulance and Rescue Unit and then to Central Bucks EMS. We proudly serve nearly 120 Square miles in the following municipalities: Doylestown Borough, Doylestown Township, Plumstead Township, Buckingham Township, Warwick Township, Solebury Township, New Hope Borough, Wrightstown Township, New Britain Borough, New Britain Township, Hilltown Township, Warminster Township, Ivyland Borough and Upper Makefield Township.
