Call for Donations for REMSA’s Mobile Operations Center

REMSA Mobile Operations Center

Always Ready is more than a catchy saying for the Paramedics, Nurses and Emergency Medical Technicians at REMSA and Care Flight. For more than 34 years, REMSA has provided mobile healthcare to the region’s 450,000 citizens and the five million people who visit the area every year.

As part of our commitment to being Always Ready, REMSA’s Ground Operations provides dispatch and emergency medical services (EMS) at more than 700 special events held annually in our area.

Throughout northern Nevada and northeastern California, REMSA and Care Flight support partner first response agencies to sustain normal operations during extraordinary circumstances. REMSA’s Search and Rescue, Wildland Fire and Tactical EMS teams support technical rescues, law enforcement and firefighters in their specialized work across the region.

As a critical part of the region’s public safety and healthcare infrastructure, REMSA must be Always Ready and able to ensure business and operational continuity – including medical dispatch and ground and air ambulance response – in the event of a natural or man-made disaster.

The Mobile Operations Center is fully outfitted with the unique specification requirements for an EMS mobile operations center. This vehicle can support special events, special teams assignments and serve as medical dispatch back-up in the event of a disaster.

State-of-the-Art Mobile Healthcare

Through a lead donation from Dean and Gloria Dow, REMSA was able to purchase this 1996 Chevy P6 Grumman command-style vehicle. REMSA is seeking $50,000 to ensure the purchase of this important vehicle is entirely cost-neutral to the organization.
If you would like to contribute, please contact Barry Duplantis, Chief Financial Officer for REMSA at or by calling 775-353-0790. You may also donate online.

As a private, non-profit, community-based organization, REMSA reinvests all funds back into the people, services and equipment needed to care for the communities it serves.
