North Country Emergency Medical Service originated in 1976 as a public ambulance service operating from the Yacolt Fire Department. Thanks to the support of local citizens, North Country is able to utilize state-of-the-art prehospital equipment and provide a high level of care not enjoyed by many rural areas of the country.
We Believe in Safety for Everyone
Our mission is to protect life, educate and rescue North Country EMS residents and visitors while providing high quality, professional emergency medical service in a progressive, cost effective and community oriented system.
About North Country Emergency Medical Service
NCEMS has always operated on the philosophy of treating all patients as friends and neighbors. As an example of how dedicated our personnel is to this motto, when both staffed ambulances are out on calls, department members, paid and volunteer, return to the station in Yacolt to staff third and fourth ambulances.
