We're Covering Reno County
It’s a service most people rarely think about until times of urgent need. When crisis strikes and uncertainty pervades, one thing is sure; we’ll deliver the care you need when you need it most.
Reno County EMS is an advanced life support provider. Our paramedic teams are trained for Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life support and Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support. Reno County EMS provides quality care when seconds count.
Reno County EMS has partnered with Hutchinson Regional Medical Center since 1971. This relationship has led to Hutchinson Regional Medical Center becoming a Certified Level 3 Trauma Center, and helped Reno County EMS improve their scene response times. Patients benefit from the quality care provided from EMS arrival through hospital admission, and through access t patient center/best practice education from Hutchinson Regional Medical Center.
Our community receives countless volunteer hours through the team's pressence at local events, board appointments and involvement on various health advisory committees. Many EMS team members also serve on rural volunteer departments throughout the county.
In a coverage area of 1250 miles (3rd largest county in KS), the team relies on volunteer EMS and first responder teams to provide immediate response in rural areas.

Reno County EMS provides volunteer agencies training, supplies, back-up coverage and advanced life support assistance.
Reno County EMS is staffed by 35 paramedics and eight EMTs and, last year, responded to more than 6,100 calls.
