North Point-Edgemere Volunteer Fire Department has placed in service a new 'Rapid Response EMS Support Vehicle'. This vehicle is a 2014 Ford Interceptor SUV. Designated as Utility 265, this unit will be equipped with BLS (Basic Life Support) and will respond on all or most EMS calls for service.In 2007, NPEVFD placed in service a 1997 Ford Expedition, purchased from the Transportation Authority. This was the primary EMS response unit until mid 2012 when the vehicle was replaced by Special Unit 267. In 2013, it was determined that Utility 265 was unsafe to be operated in emergency conditions and would be financially irresponsible to repair. NPEVFD determined the need for a dedicated EMS response vehicle, and budgeted to replace the unit with this new Interceptor. Purchased under a state contract, this vehicle was determined to be feasible for the specific need. Special Unit 267 will now become a secondary tow vehicle for our Marine Unit 269. NPEVFD would like to take this moment to thank our wonderful and supportive community. Without your help, these project's would not be possible. Thank you for your continued support!

Since its founding in 1936, the North Point-Edgemere
Volunteer Fire Department has provided fire, rescue, and EMS service. In
1986, our first and current Marine Unit, MU269, was purchased and has been in
service for over 28 years. Unfortunately, due to normal wear and tear, the service
life of this boat is nearing its end. North Point-Edgemere VFD is
currently in the process of designing it's replacement. The new boat will
be approximately 22 feet long, compared to our current 18 foot boat.
This boat will provide a better service during year round emergencies and will
provide better crew and patient protection. The boat's design will
include a large capacity fire pump, state of the art electronics, and much
more. However, in order to bring the best service to the over 175 miles
of coast line and surrounding areas, we need your help. Your contributions would help us continue to
provide this valuable service. Please go
