Just wondering has anyone else heard, Cencom maybe closing ?? To me it doesn't make sense but what do I know.

Correct. They're not making any money, or at least that's what Atlantic claims. They were also to lose a few contracts this year for various reasons.

I had heard through the rumor mill that Monoc is taking over all dispatching for Atlantic Ambulance as well.

CENCOM radio dispatching services only?

Will Atlantic Ambulance(s) remain in service?

Yes, it's not an issue with Atlantic Ambulance or Atlantic Healthcare. Just Cencom.

The word among the emergency services in Union County is indeed that MONOC purchased most of the "assets", including Trinitas and RWJ Rahway MICU contracts. There's been no final statement to that fact however. There's question about some of the municipal contracts, and some municipalities are considering dispatching their own FD/EMS again.

Little update from the NJ First Aid Council meeting on Monday night...

-MONOC bought one of the Atlantic helicopters, and is indeed supposed to take the Trinitas and RWJ Rahway ALS contracts.

-Apparently Cencom is broke and is being sued, but they wouldn't elaborate.

-The whole MONOC purchase of everything else is now in the air.

Turning into one of those infamous chaotic Union County wait and see things.
