Call Volume

The ambulances respond to calls weekly and during our busy times daily and as often as 3 times within a 24 hour period.

A majority of the volunteers have full-time day jobs and may respond to calls during the night and report back to work in the morning.

It takes a very dedicated community member to give this much time! They do this week after week to ensure someone is available to serve you in your time of need.

Elizabethtown-Lewis EMS typically responds to an average of 200 calls a year. We responded to over 400 in 2020.
