Dear Liz Kroll,
Just for the record please state that there are no emails on the possible formation of EMS between any of above listed parties.

One document to start up a whole new department does not seem possible.

Yours sincerely,


Liz Kroll, Rochelle Park Township

Chief –

It was a pleasure speaking with you and in accordance with our conversation, we have been able to secure from the South Bergen Municipal JIF, the 2020 projected insurance costs for Ambulance Operations in the Township.

The following should be recognized as part of the development of the projections:

Value relating to the Building, Equipment, Special Floaters and Vehicles is based upon previous values when the Volunteer Corps was operating
$300k in payroll for EMT’s was utilized

Based upon the foregoing, attached is the cost projections for 2020. The 2021 budget for the South Bergen JIF has not been finalized and thus, 2021 rating factors have not been fully developed. Suffice it to say, the 2021 costs would not vary much from the 2020 projections provided.

We trust this information is helpful and as always, should you have any questions or wish to discuss any aspect further, I hope you will not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards & Stay Safe!
