Functions of the Office
Trimble County EMS provides twenty-four hour emergency coverage. The EMS Building is centrally located in the county at 4874 HWY 421N. There six full-time positions with a crew of two EMT's on duty at all times. Trimble County sometimes exceeds the emergency needs that can be provided by the crew on duty, therefore our 22 volunteers are still of great value to this service. In addition to handling 911 call, they provide non-emergency services as well.
They do events at schools in the county such as first aide, CPR classes, and teach basic first aide and the importance of the 911 system and when to use it to the elementary classes, and the boy and girl scouts.
Any group of organization who would like some life saving skills training can contact Director McCoy for more information.
