Providing Health Care Where You Need It.

Callaway County EMS is dedicated to providing health care where you need it.  We have a long history of serving the citizens of Callaway County with high-quality emergency and non-emergency health care services. Our ambulances are staffed with highly trained Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics, who are dedicated to providing you with the right services in your time of need.  Our ALS ambulances are staffed with state-of-the-art equipment, including Philips HeartStart MRx ALS monitor/defibrillators with the ability to transmit a 12-lead EKG to the hospital while in the field, McGrath video laryngoscopes, LUCAS 2 CPR devices, computers running mobile CAD software connected directly to dispatch, and automatic vehicle location.


Our paramedics operate under progressive protocols approved by our Medical Director, Jim Stevermer, M.D.  They also have access to direct medical control from emergency physicians located at any of the hospitals we transport to.  When needed, we have access to a network of air ambulances to transport critically ill or injured patients to the appropriate hospital.
