TOGETHER WE CAN BUILD A HEALTHIER COMMUNITY
"The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Have you recently had an encounter with us? Take our quick survey to let us know how we are doing and how we can improve.
In the Beginning...
This agency was founded in 1984 under the name of Emerald Isle Fire and Rescue. In 1984, the agency split into two departments, Emerald Isle Fire Department and Emerald Isle Rescue Squad. The rescue squad later underwent a name change in 1997 to keep up with the evolution of the prehospital medicine industry, and became Emerald Isle Emergency Medical Services, Inc. On March 1, 2018 the non-profit organization of Emerald Isle Emergency Medical Services, Inc. transitioned into a Town of Emerald Isle EMS Department.
As we are...
The Town of Emerald Isle EMS Department operates primarily utilizing career staff, and are augmented by volunteer providers whenever possible. We provide emergency medical services to the citizens and visitors of Emerald Isle. We operate at the NC Paramedic level and are available around the clock by calling 911.
A bright future...
Our Mission: We are committed to delivering compassionate, clinically superior care while maintaining prompt and unimpeded service to all the residents and guests of Emerald Isle and our neighboring communities.
Our Vision: To help our citizens live happier, healthier lives by caring for their health and well-being beyond their medical emergencies.
