Hamilton EMS

Hamilton EMS is the exclusive provider of emergency medical services to the citizens of Hamilton, Mills, San Saba, Lampasas, and Llano counties. The EMS Department began operations in May 1990 with one ambulance and a dedicated team of first responders serving Hamilton County licensed at the Basic Life Support with Mobile Intensive Care capabilities.  Today, Hamilton EMS operates a fleet of 10 full-time and 3 reserve Mobile Intensive Care Units, all equipped with the Stryker PowerLoad XTS System (auto-loading stretchers); and licensed at the highest-level of pre-hospital emergency medical care possible in Texas. In addition to 13 MICU ambulances, HEMS manages each county service area with a 24-hour Paramedic Supervisor in a 4x4 Command truck.  Each EMS Command truck is equipped and stocked as not only a command vehicle with communications and incident command equipment; but also carries a full complement of medical gear, medications, and equipment in a climate-controlled vehicle.  Not only does an EMS Supervisor provide an emergency response to 911 calls in a supervisory capacity; they also routinely assist EMS ambulance crew with complex emergency patient transports and interfacility transfers.  This ability to provide two Paramedics in the back of an ambulance performing critical care medicine in real-time while a third drives, truly allows the best possible patient outcome.
