Livingston County EMS was
established in 1970 by the Board of Commissioners with one ambulance in
the Brighton area. Since then it has grown into a modern, efficient
member of the emergency response community as we know it today.
In 1971 the County Board opted to provide county wide service with units stationed in Howell and Brighton. From 1974 through 1981 the Department operated with two 24 hour units with an average yearly call volume of 3,000 calls.
In November, 1980 a proposal was approved by the voters of Livingston County to increase property taxes by .5 mill. On January 1, 1982 the third 24 hour car was added and Advanced Life Support (ALS) or Paramedic Service was initiated on January 26, 1982.
In February 1996 a fourth 24 hour Paramedic unit was added. This unit was located in Hartland. On December 15, 1997 a fifth 24 hour unit was added. The fifth car is housed at the new Main Station, along with the Business Office, which was opened in July of 1999. It is located at the corner of Grand River and Burkhart Rd.
Livingston County EMS is the only ambulance service in Livingston County. We cover an area of 584 square miles. The department offers a dedicated staff of medical professionals to serve the citizens of the county. Call volume now exceeds 10,000 calls per year with 60% of those being emergency calls.
Additional units can be staffed by management or off duty personnel, and mutual aid agreements with other departments provide service during busy periods or disasters.
