EMS Alliance

The mission of the Alliance is to maintain and enhance a safe and effective EMS system for the people who live here and the EMS community we serve.

The Alliance operates under a set of bylaws and follows the EMS Foundational Principles.

It is the responsibility of the Alliance Governing Board, or their backups, to represent their jurisdiction's perspectives and concerns to determine what is in the best interest of Washington County’s EMS system.
