Our service area covers about 3,500 square miles and includes as many as 400,000 people during the busy summer months. The Brainerd Region services the single largest service area in Minnesota, with seven advanced life support (ALS) ambulances staffed 24 hours a day.
Our staff of more than 70 people is comprised of paramedics, EMTs, mechanics and office professionals. Our local ambulance fleet is comprised of more than a dozen vehicles.
We're affiliated with and receive medical direction from North Memorial Medical Center, a Level I Trauma Center in Minneapolis.
In addition to emergency medical care, we provide employment for local residents and support for area businesses. We recognize the importance of educating citizens about our services through outreach presentations and station tours for schools and the general public. We're proud of the strong working relationships we've developed with area public safety and first responder agencies and are proud to have provided many of them with EMS training and equipment donations.
