Highland Fire-EMS is committed to providing the highest level of care to the communities of Highland, Pierron, St. Jacob, St. Rose, Grantfork, and Marine. Emergency Medical Services (EMS) responds to emergency scene calls, emergency inter-facility transfers, and non-emergency transfers to extended care facilities of private residences. EMS provides paramedic level of care for the community and the surrounding area, with a call volume of approximately 2,400 requests for service per year.
Highland Fire-EMS maintains a fleet of 4 Advance Life Support (Paramedic) ambulances, staffing 2 units of 24 hours a day, one unity 12 hours per day, 7 days a week with the fourth in reserve. However, an ambulance is just a vehicle full of equipment, and would be incomplete without the personnel who provide the care. Our paramedics and basic EMTs dedicate their time and considerable talents to serve the community.
