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.

Our 120 transport vehicles are deployed in three operational depots: Roselle, Voorhees, and Fair Lawn. These include: caravans, minivans, passenger vans, Mobility Assistance Vehicles (MAVs), Basic Life Support Ambulances, and Specialty Care Transport Units (SCTUs).
