911 Response

Calls to 911 account for approximately 80% of our ambulance requests. We provide these emergency responses to all of Washington County, and to our neighbors when their call volume surges.

Each emergency ambulance is staffed with a minimum of 1 EMT and 1 Paramedic or RN. Most of our Paramedics and Nurses at WCAD are also designated as a Critical Care Transport Provider.

We are beyond proud to bring these unique therapies to the sides of the road and into the homes of our patients. When every second counts, Washington County Ambulance District clinicians bring ICU quality care wherever it is needed.
