Miami County EMS staffs 3 advanced life support (ALS) ambulances daily with a minimum of 1 paramedic and 1 EMT on each ambulance. Our crews are on-duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and prepared to respond to any emergency or request for assistance. We also have a Battalion Chief on-duty 24 hours a day to respond to calls as needed to assist crews.  

Miami County EMS currently responds out of 2 stations. Station 141 is located just south of Paola at 32765 Clover Drive and houses 2 ambulances and the Battalion Chief. Station 142 is located in the Louisburg Fire Department at 205 South Metcalf and houses 1 ambulance as well as a reserve ambulance.


In addition to EMS response, we have fire department first response from the Louisburg Fire Department, Osawatomie/Fontana Fire Department, Paola Fire Department, Drexel Fire Department, Wellsville Fire Department and Johnson County Fire District #2.  Johnson County Fire District #2 is able to respond with an ambulance when needed such as when our own resources have been depleted.  All of the First Responder agencies can provide immediate BLS care until our crews arrive.


In 2014, Miami County EMS responded to 3,198 requests for an ambulance, or about 8.77 calls per day. The average response time from the time the 9-1-1 call was received by the dispatcher until the time we were on scene was 9 minutes 21 seconds. We are always looking at ways to improve response times to all citizens in a primarily rural county of 590 square miles with a population of about 32,000.


The leading calls for emergency assistance in 2014 were:


1.  General Medical

2.  Trauma

3.  Cardiac

4.  Respiratory

5.  Syncope
