      We started as a small volunteer organization in 1965 and have grown as our community has. We currently cover over 400 square miles in Monroe and Pike counties, and handle over 3000 calls a year. Our coverage area includes Lehman Township, Middle Smithfield Township, Smithfield Township, and part of Price Township. Our main stations are on Winona Falls Road, behind Foxmoor Village, and in the Mr. Z's Complex. We also have a unit housed in the Lehman Township Municipal complex.
