Paramedics & Emt’sJohnson County

Johnson County Ambulance Service (JCAS) is owned and operated by the County of Johnson, Iowa. Since its establishment in 1966, the service has been the exclusive provider of emergency ambulance response, pre-hospital emergency care and transportation in Johnson County. 

Initially operated by the Johnson County Sheriff, the service became its own separate county department in 1970. In 1976 the service began providing advanced pre-hospital care through a joint-venture with Mercy Hospital and the University Hospitals in Iowa City. The service became a paramedic level ambulance service in 1981 and advanced to the paramedic specialist level in 2005. 

With a fleet of six ambulances the service provides its services to over 118,000 county residents and covers a response area of close to 620 square miles. Two ambulances are staffed 24 hours a day out of its Iowa City base and, since 2005; one ambulance is staffed 24 hours a day in Coralville. 

In addition to providing emergency ambulance services the service also provides several non-emergency services. For over 20 years the service has worked with the University of Iowa Athletic Department providing event coverage at football, basketball, wrestling and other athletic events. Starting in 1998, the service has contracted with the University of Iowa Hospitals providing employee and administrative support for their mobile critical care units. JCAS maintains the units and provides EMT-Basic staff to assist University staff in responding to hospitals in eastern Iowa to stabilize and transport back to the University critically ill infants.  

Along with JCAS, the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system in Johnson County is comprised of a combination of volunteer and paid professional first responder agencies located throughout the county, 911 dispatch centers, and hospital emergency departments. This provides for a tiered response to calls for service. The service is an active supporter of these agencies, providing a liaison to each to assist with training and other logistical issues. The service also provides support by responding to and standing by at fire, hazardous materials and high risk law enforcement scenes. 

The service is active in providing public education regarding EMS. Along with the Johnson County EMS Association and Johnson County Safe Kids, the service participates in an annual EMS Awareness Fair. Staff also meets with a variety of groups and organizations throughout the year providing information about the EMS system, safety and injury prevention.
