Government, Police and Fire

Since 1981, Huron Valley Ambulance has worked closely with county and local government 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 to Washtenaw, western Wayne and southwest Oakland counties. Our services continue to be provided at no cost or tax subsidy to local government. HVA’s Call Center also provides centralized 9-1-1 dispatching services to 13 fire departments in Washtenaw County operating 21 fire stations.
