Emergency Services Information

Important information for Northumberland County residents! The Board of Supervisors voted at their last meeting to exempt county residents from any ambulance service bills that are not covered by some form of insurance. Patients and/or insurance companies will be billed in all cases, but residents can complete a form and provide evidence of residency and any balance on the bill beyond what is paid by insurance will be exempted.
