The Dodge Center Ambulance Service began operations in August of 1974. With dedicated staff and volunteers, the service continues to thrive today. Our mission to provide a vital public safety service has not changed, though our technology and equipment have.
Staffing & Equipment
The Dodge Center Ambulance Service operates two Advanced Life Support (ALS) capable ambulances and 1 Quick Response Vehicle (QRV). We are a part-time ALS, all 911 emergency ambulance service. We have a volunteer staff of 30 EMTs, Paramedics and RN/EMTs. The service is maintained by an Ambulance Director, 3 Full time EMT's, 3 part-time Paramedics, and numerous volunteers!
Our Primary Service Area (PSA) covers over 14,000 residents in the cities of Dodge Center, Kasson, Mantorville, and Claremont. We ALSs have mutual aid agreements with the ambulance services in Hayfield and West Concord. When responding to emergencies, we work closely with the Dodge Center Fire Department, Mantorville Fire Department, and the Claremont Fire Department, as they serve as first responders to medical and traumatic emergencies.
In addition, we ALSs 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.
We here at the Dodge Center Ambulance Service would not be so successful and professional in the delivery of emergency pre-hospital care without the dedicated help of ambulance staff, or our public safety partners.
