Shippensburg Area EMS Highlights...

Our History


Shippensburg Area EMS administration has decided not to pursue the original plan of starting our annual capital campaign drive to raise funds for a paramedic vehicle replacement. We want our staff and community members to focus on their families, their health, and staying safe during this national health crisis. Our staff members are being vigilant, and taking all precautions to keep themselves and our community safe.  

This is a tough time for our nation and our community; Ship Area EMS wanted to reach out to our community and just give the reassurance that we are still here, and will continue to serve our community 24/7.   

Changes were made last week to building operations and bill payment are as followed: we ask that community members do not come to the EMS station, and utilize the mail, phone or our drop box outside the building for all payments.

During the declared emergency any citizen that is unable to pay their ambulance bill should contact us to discuss options. Administration at Ship Area EMS will not pursue collections during the national health crisis if the patient contacts us to discuss their bill and options during this delicate time.  

We encourage you to educate your family with facts and prevention versus fear. Research shows that if communities work together on prevention, and we will be able to slow down the virus spread.

We are here to serve your needs and will continue to protect our community, and provide the highest level of regional emergency medical services. 

If you are looking to help out our first responders during this time any donations sent into the department will be used to purchase personal protective equipment (PPE). We appreciate the community’s support as always. If you have any questions and/or concerns a supervisor is always available at 717-532-6069 Ext 123
