What's in a motto anyway? Some people use a motto as a catchy phrase; others, as a fashionable banner for how they'd like to be perceived by people. However, some adopt one or create one, as Webster's Dictionary suggests, as a principle of behavior.

We're not really sure of when it "stuck" but everyone affiliated with FUCHS EMS understands the motto: "Our greatest asset is our willingness to serve." It's our motto and it comes as second nature to this team that represents more than 200 years of collective medical service experience.

On the job, our commitment is apparent as we promptly arrive on the scene and exemplify the gold standard of EMS and medical transportation service under even the most challenging conditions. For those who have worked with our well tenured team (with most of our original members still on the job together, 3 years aher the company's inception) it comes as no surprise that we also exceed expectations off the job.

When you spend the maiority of your life in pursuit of challenging the health care status quo, as Kevin Fuchs has, principled behavior tends to drive your motives. . . and your company. Although FUCHS EMS has received many citations and awards, the most powerful aspect of the team's dedication goes back to their unanimous belief that "our greatest asset is our willingness to serve" on and off the job.

And, not confined by domestic borders, FUCHS EMS' commitment to service even resulted in the donation of one of their ambulances to a struggling project providing ongoing emergency medical service for a town and newly developed airport in the Dominican Republic. What's in a motto? In the case of FUCHS EMS; true caring, dedication, responsiveness, compassion, and promptness.

Kevin Fuchs has over 20 years of Emergency Medical experience, training and education and is currently active as a Nationally Registered Emergency Medical Technician in New Jersey. Mr. Fuchs has also been educated and trained as a Paramedic, which enabled him to provide Advanced Life Support care and intervention beyond that of the Basic Life Saving provider. In 1994 he graduated Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California with a B.A in Film/Television Production and later went on to earn an Associates Degree and Paramedic Certification in 1998 fróm the very reputable St. Vincent's Institute of Emergency Care in New York City. His previous work as a New York State and City Paramedic has allowed him to provide a level of care unrivaled by most Basic Life Support health care providers today. His countless years of devotion, dedication and commitment to people in need are quite extraordinary and selfless. He has spent the majority of his life in pursuit of providing prompt, professional and exemplary care that exceeds current standards and practices. His benevolence, professionalism and years of experience in crisis and non-crisis situations alike, has earned him many citations and awards including the Medal of Honor, a Meritorious Service Medal and several Unit Citations for his volunteer work during the Northridge Earthquake, Hurricane Floyd and the World Trade Center disasters.

Presently, Mr. Fuchs maintains active memberships with several Emergency Medical and Rescue organizations throughout Northern Bergen County, New Jersey. Fuchs E.M.S. & Medical Transportation Services was established by Mr. Fuchs to provide the same level of experience, professionalism and prompt patient care that he himself has provided throughout his career.
