Delta County Ambulance District employees are a well trained and dedicated staff consisting of three different levels of pre-hospital EMS care, including basic life support (BLS) and advanced life support (ALS). We have over 200 years of combined EMS experience ranging from the emergent 911incidents to critical care inter-facility transports. Each staff member completes a system of skill competency exams, a rigorous continuous annual education program, as well as re-certification at each level every two to three years. This is to ensure that all Delta County Ambulance District employees provide the most up to date assessments and treatments to their patients.
