What We Do
In September of 2013, Grand County EMS began the process of changing from an Advanced level service to a Paramedic level service. This move has helped us fulfill our mission of providing the highest level of public safety for our residents and visitors. Grand County EMS is proud to announce that we have transitioned fully to a paramedic service. We currently have 17 paramedics on staff. We are grateful for the support of our community during the transition and look forward to providing the highest quality of care possible.
Exceptional Rural Care
GCEMS operates with an expanded scope of practice that includes field reductions, mobile infusion pumps, ventilators, and antibiotics to care for patients in the unique field circumstances we encounter with regularity. We truly believe that where you live should not determine if you live.
Our service area includes some of the most remote and pristine areas of Utah. With this comes the challenges of providing high level pre-hospital care in remote environments. We train in backcountry access and rescue, and work closely with Grand County Search and Rescue and the National Park Service to access, treat, and remove patients from the backcountry. Our staff includes professional river guides, wilderness medicine instructors, high-angle rescue technicians, professional off-road drivers, and other outdoor enthusiasts. Our providers regularly have longer than average patient contact times due to our rural location and the many remote places that people get hurt.
