Plymouth Community Ambulance Association (PCAA) provides Emergency Medical Service to a Seventy square mile coverage area consisting of eleven municipalities and approximately 110,000 permanent residents.
The population swells considerably during weekdays due in part to a large corporate and industrial presence, for which thousands more commute to work in our communities. The main district area is also a center for consumer activity with a significant number of commercial and retail venues.
The municipalities serviced begin with “The Heart of Montgomery County” Norristown Borough (Former Montgomery Hospital Paramedic Unit (Station 304) aquired in June of 2000), Plymouth Township, East Norriton Township, West Norriton Township (Former West Norriton Ambulance Service (Station 321) aquired in April of 2002), and Worcester Township.
In the fall of 2014, Plymouth Community Ambulance Association and Lower Frederick Regional Ambulance Corps (LFRAC) merged. LFRAC serviced the following municipalities in the central Montgomery County region: Lower Frederick Township, Upper Frederick Township, Perkiomen Township, Schwenksville Borough, Upper Salford Township and Limerick Township. The geographical jurisdiction is made up of urban and suburban locals, which are surrounded, filled, and bypassed with major routes, roadways, and limited access highways. A heavy volume of daily transient traffic travels through the coverage area, further increasing the population and service responsibility.
