The Cape Charles Mirror queried Northampton County about figures for the number of EMS runs that occurred from all stations (last year), and based on that data, if there was projected revenue for the upcoming fiscal year (that is, projected revenue for each station).EMS Director Hollye Carpenter provided the detailed spreadsheet data below. She also noted that “the budgeted amount of revenue for the county ambulance billing fees for FY17 is $120,000.00”.
Ms. Carpenter told us that while the County did compile response related data (listed below), information related to the volunteer agencies would need to be requested from them. The Mirror is in the process of contacting each station, but as of this publishing, has not received the necessary data.

Performance Measure: EMS agencies will 90% of the time have a unit on-scene within 20 minutes from the time of dispatch, 24 hours a day.
Response Time = time from 911 dispatch to arriving on-scene.
