Cole County Emergency Medical Services Operation Division is responsible for handling the daily calls for service throughout the County. Our service area is divided into five separate zones, and three sub-zones.
We have on-duty five ambulances that are staffed 24 hours a day. Due to the influx in the daytime population within Cole County, we are deploy three peak units that are staffed each for 12 hours a day at staggering times.
All units are advanced life support capable and staffed with at least one paramedic and one emergency medical technician.
Additionally, we have one Battalion Chief, who is a paramedic, also on duty to handle all aspects of operations. The Battalion Chief also responds to calls for service in a quick response vehicle (QRV) that has the equipment to be advanced life support capable.
