Emergency Medical Services

All ambulance service providers and emergency medical response groups in the County belong to the Portage County EMS Association. Other groups such as dispatch agencies, the technical college and Portage County Emergency Management are also represented.

The Association meets every other month to:

  • Share information about a wide variety of EMS activities

  • Develop County-wide plans and procedures

  • Develop guidelines for County grants to the EMR services

  • Plan public education

  • Plan public service events such as medical coverage at fairs and races

  • Organize an annual awards banquet
