Shared Ambulance Services

The Borough of North Haledon and the City of Paterson entered into a Shared Services Agreement for Emergency Medical Services with the Paterson Fire Department in 2017.  

The Paterson Fire Department has been responding to all ambulance calls in the Borough of North Haledon.  Whenever possible, patients will be given a choice of destination medical centers located in Paterson or Wayne.  Patients' requests to be transported to medical facilities in other New Jersey municipalities will be considered providing the request does not compromise the heath of the patient. 

Paterson will bill costumers using its emergency medical services through customary billing procedures, and will accept assignment from the patient's insurance company, but will not balance bill, and if the patient does not have insurance coverage, Paterson will not send the patient a bill.
