National Police week. We thank our men and women in blue. 🚔 #ThankyouforyourserviveIn honor of National Police Week we wanted to recognize the officers that make up the Falls Township Police Department EMT program, which began in 1990.
When it began, Officer Bill Miller (who had been certified as an EMT on his own time) and Officer Bill Wild (who had been certified as an EMT prior to being hired by the department) convinced the Command Staff that the police department should send officers to be trained as EMTs.
Officers Jim Jones and Nelson Whitney were the first officers to attend EMT school for the new program.
The most frequent call for police service in Falls Township is for residents who need medical assistance. Police EMTs provide pre-hospital emergency care to patients and then transfer care to EMTs and Paramedics of local rescue squads for ongoing assessment, care and transport.
The Falls Township Police Department is the only police department in the area with a dedicated EMT program.
Our current police EMTs are as follows:
Lt. Nelson Whitney, Sgt. Ray Fanelli, Officer John Caesar, Officer Rick Krotz (Paramedic), Officer Dave Gold and Officer Ron MacPherson.
Officers awaiting testing and certification are:
Officer Nick Phillippe, Officer Alex Sansone and Officer Mike Parnes. ... See MoreSee Less
