Tri-Hampton Rescue Squad (THRS) was established in 1942 as a non-profit volunteer organization with the mission of providing emergency medical care to our community. As one of the first ambulance services founded in Bucks County, our service area encompassed many surrounding municipalities in our infancy. Today we are one of fifteen organizations within Bucks County that provide 9-1-1 Emergency Medical Services to the community. 


For the past fifty years we have provided our service to all of Upper Southampton & Lower Southampton and approximately eighty percent of Northampton Township.  Through a resolution passed by the Board of Supervisors in August of 2018, as of September 1st, 2018, Tri-Hampton Rescue Squad is now the primary EMS provider for all of Northampton Township.  As a result, we are proud to continue providing Advanced Life Support (ALS) and Basic Life Support (BLS) ambulance service 24 hours a day to nearly 74,000 residents within the 40 square mile territory that we cover.  Last year our highly trained Paramedics and EMTs were called on more than 5,500 times for service.
