Gloucester County Emergency Medical Service (GCEMS) utilizes a dynamic deployment plan to position ambulances at strategic locations to better respond to emergencies. Ambulances are scheduled and positioned based on historical call data and current call volume. During traditionally busier times of the day, more ambulances are on duty. This process is similar to how law enforcement schedules and positions its officers. From time-to-time ambulances are re-positioned in an effort to provide better response times to the entire GCEMS coverage area.
Occasionally, you may see a GCEMS ambulance staged at a street corner or adjacent to a highway awaiting the next call.
