Serving the Communities of Franklin Township & Carlisle


About Us

JEMS provides emergency medical service to the residents and visitors of the unincorporated areas of Franklin Township and the Municipality of Carlisle. We respond to emergencies from 3 locations:

Station 15 (Headquarters) is at 201 E. 6th Street, next to the Franklin Community Park.

Station 19 (Franklin Township Fire Station) is at 3773 Robinson-Vail Road at the intersection of Rabinson-Vail Road and Barbara Drive.

Station 20 (Franklin Township Fire Station) is at 7901 Keays Road, at the intersection of Keays Road and Martz-Paulin Roads.

Our response district covers all of Franklin Township, outside the City of Franklin. It stretches from the Miami Township (Montgomery County) line to the north, the Middletown border in the south, the Madison Township (Butler County) line to the west and Clearcreek Township to the east.

In 2019 JEMS answered over 1800 requests for service. Over 1200 of these were in Franklin Township and just under 600 were in the Municipality of Carlisle. We were asked to help our neighboring communities over 150 times and were assisted by our neighboring agencies just over 50 times.


JEMS works cooperatively with Franklin Township Fire Department (95 calls) and Carlisle Fire Department (43 times) on motor vehicle crashes, structure fires, and some medical calls.

Free CPR Classes

JEMS and the City of Franklin Fire Department will be providing CPR training to our residents at NO CHARGE! To sign up for this class residents should call JEMS at (937) 746-3471 or the City of Franklin Fire Department at (937) 746-4542. Students will need to leave their name, address, telephone number and e-mail address and let us know the date they would like to attend. Classes will be held in the training room at the City of Franklin Fire Department, 45 E. 4th Street at the times listed. Instructors are JEMS and CFDF members who completed the American Heart Association CPR Instructor course.

2020 Community CPR/AED Classes have been cancelled until further notice!

If a company or group wants us to provide CPR training for their organization (nursing home staff, factory first aid teams, etc.), we will work with them to provide this at other times, and for a reasonable fee. They will need to call to set this up.

Our funding is provided by levies approved by the residents and supplemented by EMS billing. The levies were passed in 1988 (0.8 mil), 1995 (1.0 mil) and the most recent in 2013 (2.61 mil). The funding estimates we planned for in 2013 allowed for implementation of a structured vehicle and equipment replacement plan, and to provide staffing of 2 ambulances around the clock.


In the September 2017 the JEMS Board was able to approve additional staffing each day. This addition allows us to provide 3 staffed ambulances to the district as personnel allows.
