Cumberland Emergency Medical Services (CEMS) is a municipal department that is the primary provider of EMS to the Town of Cumberland.

The department deploys two transporting Paramedic advanced life support (ALS) level units 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and when staffing allows, deploys a third impact unit based on call volume. The Department also operates a non-transport Paramedic asset most weekdays.  

In the calendar year 2022-2023, the Department responded to 4,314 calls. These numbers do not account for EMS’s mutual responses into the Town.

The Cumberland Fire District (CFD), licensed as a basic life support non-transporting ambulance service, plays an integral role in the Town’s EMS system. The CFD serves as a first responder agency co-responding to all calls for EMS service throughout the Town.
