First Responders

The heart of a volunteer is not measured in size, but by the depth of the commitment to make a difference in the lives of others. -- DeAnn Hollis

What our EMS Service needs from you:

  • An ongoing need for people to Volunteer to join and retain our services locally

North Dakota requirements for A basic Life Support unit require a driver with CPR certification and an
EMT-Basic ambulance attendant (or a grandfathered Advanced First Aid Ambulance attendant). A driver
with no CPR certification may be used if a third person with CPR certification is added to the crew.
North Dakota requires an EMS vehicle be staffed with 2 CPR trained crew members with one licensed
driver and 1 EMT.

Sargent County is a rural county with a small population and our services exist because of volunteers to
keep both ambulances manned to the required level. As we all evaluate our busy lives and our shortage
of time, can you find time to make a difference to be a VOLUNTEER? This is the Call for HELP!
