Kootenai County Emergency Medical Services System (KCEMSS)
KCEMSS is a fire-based ambulance service providing 911 emergency and facility to facility transfers throughout Kootenai County. KCEMSS operates through a network of agencies, including nine fire departments and one non-profit EMS organization. KCEMSS provides EMS services up to and including paramedic and critical care services to the hospitals within Kootenai County as well as hospitals in the surrounding counties of North Idaho upon request.
The Agency is staffed by a Chief Officer, Division Chief of Clinical Services, Division Chief of Logistics, Director of Administration, and two Administrative Assistant III's. KCEMSS also employs on-call CCT nurses and CCT paramedics for our critical care transfer program.
All KCEMSS EMTs and paramedics, (with the exception of the CCT program staff) are employed by our partner agencies. For a list of those agencies, see "About Us".
