Ambulance 43
Join Our Squad
Bloomfield Emergency Medical Services, Inc.
The volunteer members of Bloomfield Emergency Medical Services (BEMS) provide the
Township of Bloomfield with EMS services during four evening shifts and special events.

Each of our volunteer members is assigned a permanent part of one of these four shifts. Shift
assignment is worked out between the member and BEMS so that the member is assigned to a
mutually agreeable shift. Once assigned to a shift, the member is expected to be in quarters 15
minutes prior to the start and on duty for the duration of that 12-hour shift. Shifts begin at 6:00
PM and conclude at 6:00 AM Monday through Friday night and begin at 6:00 PM - 7:00 AM
Saturday night.

AS stated on our home page, daytime EMS coverage is provided seven days a week from 6:00
AM - 6:00 PM, Wednesday/Friday nights from 6:00 PM - 6:00 AM and Sunday nights from 6:00
PM - 6:00 AM by paid personnel employed by the Squad.  Nine shifts a week are covered by the
paid division.
