Harmony EMS has developed deep roots within the communities we serve. The volunteer organization was founded in 1992 when the ambulance service with its few volunteers became independent of the fire department. Prior to that time, emergency calls were received by phone at a corner market where a volunteer “dispatched’ crews from a membership list. Men and women left their jobs, their homes, church and their holiday dinners to help someone in need. Women in dresses and men in overalls arrived on scene to rescue accident victims, perform CPR, and treat medical emergencies. While it is no longer practical to provide for the needs of our growing community as a volunteer organization, we believe our paid professional staff maintains the same commitment to patient care as their predecessors.
Harmony EMS is a non-profit, multi-jurisdictional ambulance service that covers an area of over 200 square miles. We provide 24 hour emergency and non-emergency ambulance service to the residents of 10 boroughs and townships across two counties within our service area. Wheelchair van service is available to all of our residents. We provide stand-bys for public events for the schools, healthcare facilities, businesses, and community groups within our service area. We actively provide mutual aid for surrounding services.
Harmony EMS has a long-standing commitment to providing service, prioritizing patient care, and pursuing excellence. We offer career opportunities for paramedics, EMTs, wheelchair van drivers, and business office staff. Volunteers are a welcomed addition to any crew. We are a recognized precepting site for the community colleges in both Butler and Allegheny counties. We are accredited by the PA DOH as a continuing education sponsor. As an expression of our ongoing concern for outreach, education and public safety, Harmony EMS provides First Aid and CPR classes for community groups, healthcare and childcare workers, Scout troops, and police and fire d
