Community Partnerships

HVA has worked closely with county and local government for over 30 years in a public-private partnership, providing emergency medical services and ambulance transportation to residents in the communities we serve.

In addition to providing fire protection, local fire departments also provide first response to medical emergencies. HVA paramedics work as a team with firefighters to provide patients with rapid, high quality, compassionate patient care and transport.

Police departments are responsible for answering 9-1-1 calls, including calls for medical assistance. They assist us with coordination of resources, and respond to insure that the scene is safe for the patient, family, firefighters and paramedics.

It is HVA's goal to provide responsive, high quality emergency medical services in Washtenaw, western Wayne and southwest Oakland counties. Our services continue to be provided at no cost or tax subsidy to local governments.

HVA also provides centralized 9-1-1 dispatching services for the following 13 fire departments (who operate 21 fire stations) in Washtenaw County:
