Carroll County Ambulance
Carroll County Ambulance Service is a county-based EMS service in rural Iowa. Responding to over 2,600 calls every year and covering over 600 sq miles. They staff a Service Director, a secretary/ambulance coder/biller, 11 full time paramedics, and 19 part-time EMS providers.

In June of 2021, they lost their beloved Service Director, Darrell Baker to lung cancer. With big shoes to fill, the organization appointed Paramedic/RN Jamie Wuebker as the new EMS Service Director. Since this appointment, Carroll County Ambulance service has improved their delivery of ambulance service with upgrading its equipment and securing new funding through multiple grants and community backing. They now have 3 Zoll V Vents, Glidescope Go video laryngoscopes, Sapphire IV Pumps, CO monitors, as well as additional LUCAS devices, EZ-IOs, Stryker Stairchairs, and Lifepak 15 monitors.

Carroll County Ambulance not only looks to improve their own operations, but also improving the services provided by other agencies within their community. CCAS stocks iGel airways for the entire county, including the BLS teams in their non-transporting communities.

Not only has CCAS improved operations, they also stepped up their continuing education offerings to EMS providers in their community by becoming an authorized NAEMT Training Center! They can now host educational opportunities that fit any level of EMS provider as well as the array of NAEMT course offerings! They have partnered with Western Iowa Tech Community College to provide CAPCE accredited education hours for all training and education opportunities offered by CCAS!

CCAS has formed great relationships with their local healthcare organizations St. Anthony’s Regional Hospital and Manning Regional Healthcare Center, to ensure efficient and effective pre-hospital care is being provided to its community and visitors and making sure CCAS EMS providers are proficient at intubation by providing live intubation training opportunities in the operating room.

The leaps and bounds made by CCAS over the last year certainly should not go unrecognized. Their progressive and proactive approach towards EMS has been complimented throughout Iowa. They are true innovators for EMS in our great State.

I am honored to present this years, Career EMS Service Provider of the Year award to, Carroll County Ambulance Service!
