Special Need Registration Program

Basic Life Support Services

Hopewell Valley is served by one paid and three volunteer emergency medical services, which provide basic life support. The medical response areas are the valleys three fire districts that were established many years ago. Today, they still generally provide geographically sound boundaries for rapid emergency response.

The Pennington First Aid Squad is a volunteer organization, which serves Pennington Borough and the Pennington Fire Company response district (District 51) of Hopewell Township. The squad is located on Broemel Place in Pennington Borough and is the busiest of the volunteer emergency medical services. They are funded by a squad fund drive and tax dollars allotted by Pennington Borough and the Hopewell Township Fire District.

The Hopewell Borough Fire Department's Emergency Medical Unit, staffed by volunteers, serves the Borough of Hopewell and the Hopewell Fire Company's response district (District 52) of Hopewell Township. Hopewell E.M.U. is located at the firehouse on Columbia Ave. in the Borough of Hopewell and is supported by tax funds from the Hopewell Borough and Hopewell Township Fire Districts as well as the organizations fund raising activities.

The Union Fire Company Rescue Squad is located at the firehouse on Rt. 29 in Titusville and serves the Titusville Fire response district (District 53) of Hopewell Township. This volunteer unit is supported through tax funds of the Hopewell Township Fire District and the organizations fund raising.

Hopewell Valley Emergency Services Unit also operates a medical response unit from 6 AM to 4 PM Monday through Friday. This unit's formation was in response to the three volunteers organizations' difficulty in finding new members available to ride during the normal working hours. All of the units are familiar with each other's equipment and personnel and frequently work together at scenes to form a unified team to deal with the Valley's medical emergencies.

All units above provide their services without any charge to the patients.

Advanced Life Support Services

Hopewell Valley's advanced life support services are obtained through the Mercer County Mobile Intensive Care Unit of Capital Health Systems at the Helene Fuld Campus in Trenton. Four to six units are constantly manned and stationed in specific districts throughout the County. These units (ALS units) respond along with the local emergency medical services in potentially life threatening cases. The response is directed by specific protocols obtained by the 9-1-1 Communications Center when the initial call is received. The ALS units charge each patient through Capital Health Systems substantial fees for their services. Frequently patients are confused and believe that they are being billed by their local emergency medical service.

Trauma centers are easily accessed through ground transport or by the New Jersey Air Medical Unit currently operated by the New Jersey State Police. All local BLS and ALS units have pre-designated landing zones used in these situations which cuts the response time from injury to intervention to a minimum. The ALS dispatch center handles air medical dispatch and coordination when field EMS personnel report specific criteria upon scene arrival.

This two tiered system of response allows both life threatening and non-life threatening calls for service to be handled with a minimum but adequate number of resources to handle the situation.

IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, DIAL 9-1-1
