Pocono Mountain Regional Emergency Medical Services (PMREMS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors comprised of representatives from six member municipalities: Barrett, Coolbaugh, Paradise, Tobyhanna and Tunkhannock Townships along with Mount Pocono Borough.
PMREMS Paramedic & EMT professionals provide Advanced & Basic Life Support services to these municipalities, as well as, mutual aid supporting neighboring municipalities in a joint effort to “Promote the General Health of the Community.”
Pocono Mountain Regional Police Department serves the communities of Coolbaugh Township, Mount Pocono Borough, Tobyhanna Township, Tunkhannock Township and now Barrett Township. The Pocono Mountain Regional Police Department became its own entity in 1994 with the converging of the Mount Pocono Borough and Tobyhanna Township Police Departments. Tunkhannock Township joined in 1995, Coolbaugh Township joined in 1997 and Barrett Township Completed the Department in 2015. The regionalization of the four departments gave the communities the opportunity to utilize manpower to the greatest potential while maximizing police coverage.
Chartered in 1925, the Pocono Mountain Volunteer Fire Company has provided fire protection to the residents, businesses and visitors of the Pocono Mountain region of Northeastern Pennsylvania for over 75 years.
