County Emergency Medical Service (EMS) is the primary agency responsible for the
pre-hospital care and transportation of persons who become acutely ill or
injured and are in need of ambulance transport to a hospital using Advanced Life
Support ambulances. Additionally Sedgwick County EMS provides scheduled
ambulance transportation services for persons who require routine transfer by
ambulance based on a medical necessity.
Sedgwick County EMS is a regional Basic Life Support Training
Center for the American Heart Association and paramedics offer Cardio-Pulmonary
Resuscitation (CPR) classes for the community. EMS has also been proactive in
the community to enhance the public's knowledge and understanding of services.
In addition to CPR classes, Sedgwick County EMS frequently participates in
programming in local schools. One of the most popular programs includes EMS
paramedics visiting classrooms to educate children on accessing the emergency
system, demonstrating EMS equipment used during service, and a tour of the
ambulance. This program is designed to make them more familiar with EMS should
they ever need to access the system. In addition to these programs, safety belt
and child safety seats are a part of EMS injury prevention efforts. EMS staff
promotes proper usage during school programs and community events.
Mission: To assure quality public services that provide for the present and future well-being of the citizens of Sedgwick County.
