HELP US, HELP YOU!
Time is our enemy. In an Emergency, locating the caller’s address as soon as possible is the first step in saving lives and property. Time wasted searching for the proper address is one thing many callers to 911 don’t have.
The Fredericktown Community Joint Emergency Ambulance District is located in Northwest Knox County. The district is made up of The Village of Fredericktown, Berlin Township, Wayne Township, Pike Township, Middlebury Township and the Northern half of Morris Township. The district is 118 square miles and has a population of over 8,700 residents.
Our Station, based in the Village of Fredericktown, is staffed with a minimum of 2 EMS providers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The station operates two Advanced Life Support ambulances that are equipped with some of the latest lifesaving technology, which can range from cardiac and pulmonary care to trauma treatment and injury management.
Our members work under the direction of Dr. Trent Timmons, DO. Dr. Timmons has been serving as the district’s medical director since 2014. We rely on the EMT’s, AEMT’s and Paramedics to provide a valuable and much-needed service to the residents of the Fredericktown Community by providing the most recent and effective forms of care to all community members in their time of need.
Both ambulances, a 2010 Horton and a 2015 Braun are equipped with Stryker Power-Load systems and Power Cots capable of lifting 700# patients. A 2009 Chevy Tahoe is Basic Life Support equipped. We also have a Basic Life Support equipped John Deere Gator to be used as an alternate response vehicle for off-road emergencies and special events. The district also maintains and equips a trailer that we use to work with multiple organizations for use in the case if disasters when additional resources and shelter is needed.
We would like to thank our community for their support as we practice within our district. Our main goal as EMT’s and as volunteers is to help our community in every way that we know possible. While we attempt to do so, we do genuinely appreciate all of the support and confidence that our community offers.
