In September of 2013 the Grand County Council approved Grand County EMS' plan to move its service from an Advanced Level agency to a Paramedic level service. This move helps us fulfill our mission of providing the highest level of Public Safety and Public Health for our residents and visitors. GCEMS is in the process of making that transition, we currently have 3 Paramedics on staff and an additional 13 in a 9 month long Paramedic training program. We are grateful for the citizens support and we look forward to providing Paramedic Level Service to the community.
12 Lead and STEMI program: Grand County EMS is a leader in rural STEMI care in Utah. We utilize highly sensitive cardiac monitors to help determine the best destination for that patient. We are continuing to develop our program in conjunction with St. Marys Hospital in Grand Junction and Moab Regional Hospital in Moab. We truly believe that where you live should not determine if you live.
Back Country Care:
Grand County Emergency Medical Service's area includes some of the most remote and pristine areas of Utah. With our area comes the challenges of providing high level pre-hospital care in these remotes environments. We train in backcounty access and rescue, as well as work closely with Grand County Search and Rescue and the National Park Service to achieve our goal of providing high level of care. Our staff includes, professional boat guides, wilderness medicine instructors, high angle rescue technicians, professional off road drivers, and many others.
