We've come a long way with ambulance and emergency medical services since the early days of hammock carts and horse-drawn wagons. And our home state of New Jersey played a huge role in the evolution of first aid and EMS history. Here's three facts about the milestones our state has achieved throughout the years.

Last month, the Burlington County Times reported that the Delran, NJ Emergency Squad had its licensed suspended by the New Jersey Department of Health.
Their chief would ride a long and treat patients on a regular basis. What's wrong with that you ask? Nothing, except his EMT license had been expired since December of 2010.
To cover their tracks, the squad would then alter trip reports to claim that only credentialed employees had done the runs.
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.
Great news. We’re hosting a course coming up in April that’s going to teach you how to be an EMT. When you’re done with the course, which runs from April 14th to July 21st, you’ll be ready to sit for the exam and work in NJ as an EMT.

It’s never been more important to upgrade and optimize our 911 system for cell phones. Seventy percent of emergency calls now come in that way. We also need to be able to text, send pictures, and give dispatchers the ability to geo-locate cell phones like is available in many other states.
You can currently text 911 in some counties in NJ. But the system, developed in the 1980s, cannot track where exactly the calls or texts come from. It can only provide a range. The whole grid needs to be revamped for it to work more efficiently.
