Fleet service, repair and preventive maintenance

To make sure safe, reliable care is there when you need it, we keep all our emergency vehicles in top condition. Our certified mechanics repair and maintain our own fleet of nearly 80 standard and emergency vehicles. But we also do it for other EMS providers in the region, as well as privately owned vehicles — because your health is important to us. Our facility is a licensed PA State Safety & Emissions Inspection Station.
