Emergency Medical Services (EMS)

Newaukum Valley Fire & Rescue provides ALS (paramedic) and BLS (EMT) emergency medical services (EMS) to the District. In 2014, the agency entered into a contract with American Medical Response (AMR) to provide a fulltime paramedic housed out of Station 5-1 in Napavine. This is an ongoing contract requiring annual renewal. During times that two or more requests for paramedic services are made during a call in progress, additional paramedics from Chehalis, Centralia, or South County Medic One are requested to assist. The District owns a total of three ambulances, two are stationed in Napavine at Station 5-1, and one is stationed at Mary's Corner at Station 5-3. Trained volunteers augment the on duty crew when necessary to provide adequate staffing levels during multiple calls or when a response requires additional resources. If necessary, mutural aid is requested from surrounding districts, departments, and/or private ambulance services to help ensure that adequate staffing levels are met during all circumstances.
