We provide Advanced Life Support to the county’s residents, as well as the only available ground Advanced Life Support to the landlocked areas of Russell and Wayne Counties. We provide care for a local population of around 65,000 year-round, and upward of 750,000 in the summer months.
Five emergency units and one non-emergency unit are staffed on weekdays, fielding about 12,000 calls annually. Funding is derived from various sources including our county occupational tax, grants and service fee collections.
With an exceptional rescue squad, one of the finest 911 centers in Kentucky, 18 Fire Departments, a regional Haz-Mat Team, and an aero medical service that can be on-scene in minutes, Somerset-Pulaski EMS is prepared to offer residents the best care. We also have mutual aid agreements with our sister EMS services in connecting counties.
