- Ambulance Department
The Dodge Center Ambulance Service began operations in August of 1974. With a dedicated staff of full-time, part-time, and paid-on-call, the service continues to thrive today. Our mission to provide a vital public safety service has not changed, though our technology and equipment have.

Our Primary Service Area (PSA) covers over 14,000 residents in Dodge County including the cities of Dodge Center, Kasson, Mantorville, and Claremont. We provide ALS mutual aid with other nearby ambulance services. When responding to emergencies, we work closely with the Dodge Center Fire Department, Kasson Fire Department, Mantorville Fire Department, and the Claremont Fire Department, as they serve as first responders to medical and traumatic emergencies.
In addition, we have an outstanding working relationship with the Dodge County Sheriff’s office, their deputies and dispatchers. In the City of Kasson, we enjoy a great working relationship with the Kasson Police Department and their officers as well.
