QRS Certification

The Borough of Conshohocken in conjunction with Narberth Ambulance and the Conshohocken Fire Department have successfully completed and implemented a Quick Response Service “QRS”.

A QRS agency is an entity that provides emergency medical service to a community in a non-transport quick response capability. The Conshohocken Fire Department has medically licensed staff on duty. The staff can provide basic life support in conjunction with or prior to the arrival of an ambulance. The QRS service is dispatched by the county to all medical calls in Conshohocken Borough 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

After a vigorous process, we have passed the final inspection by the Pennsylvania Department of Health Bureau of Emergency Medical Services.

We would like to congratulate and thank the following teams and individuals for a perfect example of what cooperation, coordination, communication, and effort can accomplish.
