2016 VOLUNTEER EMS SERVICE

Remsen Ambulance
Remsen Ambulance is a service in NW Iowa providing a coverage area of 152 square miles. They are a provisional Paramedic service that has a paramedic on 85% of the calls. This is exceptional as they have only 2 paramedics. They handle over 250 calls a year, from 10-50's, to the nursing home transfers and doing P-assists from neighboring communities! They are an outstanding crew consisting of 10 EMT's and 2 paramedics. They also have 3 CPR instructors that teach many classes for the local community. They also teach EMT classes for the community colleges in the area. Remsen ambulance was one of the first services to do 12 lead EKG's in the field and transmit to local hospitals. They also have time to do fund raising by having street dances, hamburger fry's, chamber coffee's and EMT week breakfast's. This is a very dedicated crew that works hard at keeping their community that they live and work in safe! Remsen Ambulance truly deserves to be considered as the volunteer service of the year.
