Northwest EMS was named Pa. EMS Agency of the Year for 2020


On February 4, the Municipal Emergency Services Authority of Lancaster County (MESA) will begin providing 911 emergency medical services previously provided by Northwest EMS.

Like so many EMS agencies, Northwest EMS was facing insolvency due to insufficient revenue and rising costs. MESA is a new publicly funded municipal authority formed to replace Northwest EMS and ensure that 911 ambulance service is available to you on a sustainable basis.

An annual fee charged to property owners and employers will fund MESA and enable 24/7 readiness to respond to EMS calls.

If you were a Northwest EMS member for the 2023 subscription year, your Northwest EMS subscription and benefits will continue to remain active until MESA begins operating.

EMS services provided by Will soon be provided by
