Lincoln County began its ambulance service operation under the supervision of the county hospital on September 1, 1972. There was only basic first aid service in the beginning, with nine full-time employees working 24-hour shifts every other day. Two ambulances were staffed twenty-four hours a day. Within a year all employees had successfully completed the state sanctioned EMT (emergency medical technician) training course. The new EMTs gave the citizens of Lincoln County BLS (basic life support) service countywide for the first time.
In 1975 the county had its first three EMT-Paramedics, offering ALS (advanced life support) through the ambulance service. By this time, the ambulance service was recognized as an Emergency Medical Service (EMS). Advances in training and equipment have always been a priority in our ambulance service.
There have been many advances in EMS for Lincoln County in the last 40 years. Today our EMTs and Paramedics are provided with the latest training and technology to meet the medical emergencies they encounter every day. Our staff is part of the Accredited Chest Pain Center at Lincoln Medical Center and was chosen along with Lincoln Medical Center to be a Beta test site for the St Thomas Stroke network, and Lincoln Medical Center Ambulance Service was named the 2013 ALS Service of the year by the Tennessee Ambulance Service Association.
Our staff complete over 30 hours of in service and continuing education yearly, and are required to complete yearly skills evaluations. We are recognized as an “A” rated ALS ambulance service by the state of Tennessee.
Our services include but are not limited to: 911 emergency response covering 520 square miles with an approximate population of 39,000 residents, medical convalescent transport to and from doctors’ offices, dialysis, and surgery centers, Inter-facility transfers to hospitals of higher care, Event Medicine, and Haz-Mat response.
