In 2002 the Johnson County Ambulance District was established to provide high quality pre-hospital emergency medical care to the residence of Johnson County. The residents approved a tax levy to form the District in order to provide fast efficient medical care.


The Ambulance District Staffs no less than five ambulances 24 hours a day with one 12 hour ambulance as well. The District operates out of five facilities locate at:
