Annual Report

It is hard to believe yet another year has passed since the we compiled data for last year’s Annual Report. During the past year, Union Emergency Medical Services did not experience ongoing growth witnessed in years past, but unprecedented events caused the organization to focus on situations never before being a priority. While we continue to pursue our transformation to a more progressive industry leader, this year’s challenges were not unlike the challenges faced by other EMS Agencies, both on the state and national levels.
