Ambulance Companies

There are two ambulance companies that service Tinicum Township: Upper Bucks Regional Emergency Medical Services and Point Pleasant – Plumsteadville Emergency Medical Services. Both non-profit companies are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with career paramedics. In the event the primary ambulance is not available, Bucks County 911 will dispatch the next closest appropriate unit automatically.

To ensure a rapid response time, these ambulance companies are supplemented by Quick Response Units (QRS) that originate from the Delaware Valley and Ottsville Fire Companies. Their proximity often enables them to reach you first and provide basic medical service until the ambulance arrives.

Safety Tips

Reflective Numbers Help Emergency Responders find you FAST! 

When an emergency responder has difficulty locating an address, they lose valuable time. Minutes can mean the difference between life and death for a family member or the complete loss of your home or barn to fire. Make sure you have properly sized reflective street numbers on your house or business. The numbers must be placed at a conspicuous location at the end of your driveway. The Department of Public Works can provide a compliant, reflective sign for a small fee of $10.00. If you have any questions, please contact us at 610-294-9154 or email Doug Skelton, Public Works Director, at dskelton@tinicumbucks.org
