EMS is proud to provide emergency
medical services to Miami County,
Kansas. Starting operations in
June of 1989, the first year Miami
ran 781 calls. In 2012, we ran 2,853 calls serving a resident population of
approximately 32,000 covering an area of 590 square miles. About half of our
residents of Miami County live in the 3
largest communities of Louisburg, Osawatomie,
and Paola, the County seat.
We are funded through
a combination of tax dollars generated
through a mil levy and the revenue generated from emergency medical services and
patient transport. We have also received grants from very gracious local
foundations that have continued to support equipment purchases and the
operations of the ambulance service.
EMS is dedicated to the health and
safety of the residents of, and visitors to, Miami County, Kansas.
We strive to provide exceptional pre-hospital patient care with the leadership
and support of our Medical Director, Dr. Stephen Meirose, DO, FACEP, and the
Medical Executive Committee and Emergency Medicine Committee of Miami County
Medical Center. We incorporate advanced treatment protocols and state-of-the-art
equipment to provide the best care to the public we serve.
