Le Mars Ambulance Service  

 The Le Mars Ambulance has been active in the community for over 35 years. It is sponsored by the City and the crew works closely with Floyd Valley Hospital, Le Mars Fire and Rescue and the Le Mars Police Department. Currently, the crew consists of 17 members, averaging 15 years of service and experience. Crewmembers are "on call" eleven 12-hour shifts a month. The shifts run from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. for the day crew and 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. for the night crew. A driver and two additional EMTs are "on call" at one given time.

The Director maintains the ambulance, attends City meetings, files patient insurance and oversees the administrative functions of the service. The organization has a training officer who records and maintains the members' educational records. The training officer also assists in coordinating continuing education or clinical work. The organization also has a compliance officer who audits the reports to ensure the service is in compliance with state and local protocols.  A medical director from Medical Associates monitors the ambulance protocols.

The Le Mars Ambulance has been considered a provisional paramedic level ambulance service since 1999. The Le Mars crew presently consists of 5 members at the "B" level, 6 at the "I" level, 3 at the paramedic specialist level and 3 RN's.  The Le Mars Ambulance has approximately 45 calls a month and squad members are required to attend regularly scheduled monthly meetings.

For those on the ambulance crew, being "on call" is a family way of life. It is more than a job. For all of life's blessings and challenges, working on the Le Mars Ambulance has created a close working relationship among crewmembers. It means having pride in helping the Le Mars community care for the sick and injured.
