Teton County Increases Ambulance Service

As of this week, Jackson Hole Fire/EMS has a second 24-hour a day, seven days a week paramedic level service at the Moose-Wilson Fire Station on Highway 390.  Over 10 years ago, Fire/EMS identified that the increasing number of EMS calls would necessitate an additional fully-staffed ambulance, in addition to the 24-hour staffed ambulance in Jackson. Since 2010, Fire/EMS has provided 7:00 am to 7:00 pm daytime ambulance staffing at Station 6.  The 24-hour staffing of this second paramedic level ambulance ensures timely response to 911 requests for service on the west bank of the Snake River, as well as providing response for calls throughout the county when necessary. This second ambulance also enhances the county’s ability to provide inter-facility transfers of patients from St. John’s Medical Center to regional specialty hospitals in Idaho or Utah; which has a cost savings for the patient and additional revenue stream for Jackson Hole Fire EMS.
