Learn About REMSA
REMSA has an exclusive franchise to provide all paramedic ground ambulance services within Washoe County with the exception of the areas served by the Gerlach volunteer ambulance service and the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District. This system was designed to assure excellent and consistent patient care and response times, medical quality and stable financial performance.
REMSA staffs a nationally accredited clinical communications center, provides community outreach programs and education, and is one of only three EMS agencies in the world to be continuously accredited by three separate EMS oversight agencies.
REMSA’s paramedics are continuously trained and certified in the most current life-saving techniques such as Advanced Life Support, Trauma Life Support and Neonatal Resuscitation. REMSA operates Care Flight, which provides critical care helicopter transport services to northern Nevada and northeastern California. Care Flight is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems.
