In January 1977, the McCandless–Franklin Park Ambulance Authority was incorporated as a nonprofit emergency medical service municipal authority. Under its bylaws, the Ambulance Authority Board is made up of seven members, five of which are McCandless residents; two are residents of Franklin Park Borough. Because of its mission, experience in a health care field is important, but not required; business acumen is helpful. Members each serve a five-year term.

The Ambulance Authority’s office is located at 9925 Grubbs Road adjacent to the Town Hall Complex, on land donated by the Town. A substation is located on Brandt School Road in Franklin Park. Marshall Township, Pine Township, and Bradford Woods Borough contract for service in their communities from the Ambulance Authority. The Authority now serves over 60,000 residents (over an area of 62 square miles), with an average of 3,000 calls annually.
