The Mountain Top Fire Company owns and operates two Basic Life Support (BLS) ambulances. We have a 2019 Ford Transit Type II Demers Series and a 2017 Ford Transit Type II Demers Series. We operate out of two stations. Our main station is the fire station in Sandy Ridge. Our ambulance sub-station is in Osceola Mills, located at 199 Hale Street. This location is where we staff a crew from 8am to 4pm, Monday through Friday. The reason for staffing this station is due to the majority of our ambulance emergency calls are in Osceola Mills Borough and the surrounding Decatur Twp. This helps us provide quicker response to your time of need. In the event that your emergency requires Advanced Life Support (ALS), Moshannon Valley EMS of Philipsburg will also be responding and will provide care while transporting in our ambulance. During the hours of 4PM to 8AM on weekdays and during the weekend we have an on call crew made up of paid members-employees and volunteers that will respond in the event of your emergency. This ensures our ambulance is staffed 24/7.

We strive to provide the best care available. We train daily and make sure all equipment is up and running efficiently every day. Our ambulance service is licensed through the PA Department of Health to provide BLS care. Our ambulance service is also recognized at the Master Level of providing pediatric care through the EMS Child Recognition Program.
 

Our annual ambulance subscription drive is underway for 2021. Our EMS service does third party billing. Most insurance companies only pay a percentage of the bill and will leave you with a great amount of out-of-pocket expense. By purchasing a membership, we will "write-off" any monies not paid by your insurance company in the event you need our EMS services. Price for the membership is $60 for family (everyone who resides in your household) and $40 for single. If you are in need of an ambulance subscription, please call us at 814-339-7410 and we will mail one to you.

 
 
Below are a couple life threatening emergencies that have gained research over the last few years that we would like you to be familiar with:
 
STROKE-ACT FAST
 
F- Face: Ask the person to smile, Does one side of the face droop?
A- Arms: Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward or doesn't move at all?
S- Speech: Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase as "The sky is blue in Pennsylvania." Is their speech slurred or strange?
T- Time: If you observe any of these signs, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY, TIME IS BRAIN!
 
CARDIAC ARREST
 
Research has shown that breathing is ineffective within the first 10 minutes of cardiac arrest. What will save a person's life is early and proper CPR along with early defibrillation if an AED is available. If you do not know CPR, we strongly recommend that you obtain your certification in it. It may save your family members life or someone else. We strongly encourage all business to have your employees trained in CPR and to also purchase an AED. Is someone's life worth the cost? We say yes! If you have trouble finding a CPR/AED class or have questions about purchasing an AED, just give us a call! We would be more than happy to assist you!
 
OPIOID OVERDOSE CRISIS
 
Every day, more than 115 Americans die after overdosing on opioids. The misuse of and addiction to opioids including prescription pain relievers, heroin, and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl is a serious national crisis that affects public health as well as social and economic welfare. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that the total "economic burden" of prescription opioid misuse alone in the United States is $78.5 billion a year, including the costs of healthcare, lost productivity, addiction treatment, and criminal justice involvement.
