Our EMS is part of the county department. Almost every station in the county has one or two ambulances in their stations. This is to assure that there is enough covered for the county. Originally we had contracted out to a private organization to provide EMS to the department but the decision was made to purchase ambulances for almost all of the stations in the county. There are a total of 14 ambulances stationed throughout the county along with 7 support units. Each ambulance is built on a International Commercial Chassis and each support unit is built with a utility box on a Ford Chassis. There is also a Mobile Stroke Unit available that will travel throughout the county and surrounding areas to provide free scannings to the public. If it would ever be needed private ambulance services will be contacted if a mass casualty incident would ever occur in the county.
