Medical transportation is a key aspect in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. All across the country, EMTs are assisting with overflow at hospitals, bringing patients to and from various facilities, and putting themselves at risk for the sake of others.
We recently spoke with Joe Borer, On Time's Vice President of North Operations, to find out more the impact this virus has had on EMS operations in New Jersey, how their team stays motivated during the crisis, and their plans for the future.
Here's what we learned about some of the heroes at On Time.
Kristen Cammarata is a Field Supervisor at On Time Ambulance. She began as an EMT and quickly rose through the ranks. She now supervises more than 60 EMTs and MAV drivers. Kristen also teaches CPR courses and will soon be leading our Emergency Vehicle Operation courses as well. She has been described by her supervisor as “a keeper.”

Last weekend, five On Time team members participated in the Running With The Devils 5K Run and Family Fun Walk in West Orange, NJ. The event was sponsored by the New Jersey Devils and RWJBarnabas Health to benefit the programs and services at its 11 hospital facilities, hospice initiatives, the Behavioral Health Network, and the Children's Specialized Hospital.
We caught up with Carlos Rojas, a mechanic in the Fleet Department to chat about his time at On Time Ambulance, and taking pride in your work.
This week we sat down with Tanner Coles, On Time EMT and Army National Guard Medic, to find out what it's like to be in the Guard and how that work translates to being an EMT at On Time. Our conversation has been edited for brevity and clarity.
Yesterday, during the winter storm, blizzard, extra tropical cyclone, Nor'easter, bomb cyclone, whatever you want to call it, we activated our Snow Team at the Roselle base. The snow was removed throughout the property ensuring a safe environment for all the incoming staff. We are very proud that we were fully operational throughout the storm with zero incidents!
I am very happy to announce that Susan Delsandro has been promoted to Executive Vice President of the On Time Companies.
Hired way back when On Time’s headquarters was in my mother’s basement, Susan was our second driver, and first female employee.

Patient safety is our top priority. So we're always looking for ways to improve on that front. That's why three years ago we implemented our Silence is Golden program, a.k.a. Tone it Down. The program allows us to identify, improve upon, and strive to eliminate any unsafe driving whatsoever.
Robyn began her career at On Time on April 14th, 1997, as a customer service representative taking customer calls, answering questions, booking trips, and conducting insurance verifications.
Stuart Maslow grew up taking care of a sick family member, realized he had a knack for patient care, and is now Scheduling Manager and a full-time EMT at On Time as well as a full-time student earning his Bachelor's Degree.
Service animals are great for the blind and those with certain disabilities --- but new therapy solutions involving dogs, cats, and even birds and fish are gaining momentum throughout the health care world.
Our tagline, Caring in Motion, means that quality care for our patients and partners goes beyond just our transportation services. It’s the driving force behind everything we do.
On Friday, May 13th, we held a job training and practical skills evaluation event for The Jewish Vocational Service of Metrowest New Jersey here at our Roselle headquarters. Diana Arias, a former On Time employee and current Program Coordinator/Vocational Counselor at JVS NJ East Orange, organized the field trip.
Whenever a winter storm threatens New Jersey, On Time Ambulance is tracking it well in advance. Our Director of Operations, Joe Borer, is involved in the state’s Office of Emergency Management and therefore receives real-time detailed forecast updates as any major local storm system develops. In the case of Winter Storm Jonas, we began preparations about a week prior to the massive storm’s arrival. We made sure we’d have extra maintenance staff on hand and plenty of salt, shovels, plows, and additional personnel ready to clear the way. However, Mother Nature doesn’t always cooperate with the weather forecast.
When I opened On Time 25 years ago, it was a wheelchair van company with three vehicles and a handful of drivers based out of my mother’s basement.
Today, we have expanded into a full-service medical transportation company with a fleet of 130 vehicles and four locations throughout New Jersey.
