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.

Franklin Township Board of Trustees
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.
