In 2002 the Johnson County Ambulance District was established to provide high-quality prehospital emergency medical care to the residents of Johnson County, Missouri. The residents approved a property tax levy to form the district in order to provide fast efficient medical care.

The ambulance district staffs at least five ambulances 24 hours a day as well as a 12 hour ambulance. The district operates out of five facilities located at:

Headquarters & Training Center - House 1

500 E Young Avenue, Warrensburg

House 3

707  W 2nd Street, Holden

House 4

1360 NW 565 Road, Pittsville

House 5

2342 Irish Lane, Knob Noster

Staffing includes 43 full-time employees and 22 part-time employees. The district averages over 7,700 responses per year and provides ambulance service to more than 830 square miles of Johnson County. In addition to ambulance responses, Johnson County Ambulance District offers training programs and community education.  We also provide ambulances to stand by at public events throughout the community.
