Our protocols are virtually all on standing orders and include surgical cricothyrotomy, CPAP, RSI, combat tourniquets, hemostatic gauze, and medications such as Ketamine and Tranexamic Acid. Our ambulance fleet currently consists of two 2019 Ford F-350's and a 2016 Ford F-350. Our reserve units are a 2015 Ford F-350 and 2009 Ford F-350.
Jewett EMS was formed in 1991 as a volunteer EMS service that provided 911 EMS response to the city of Jewett and surrounding areas. In 2005, with the formation of Leon County ESD 3, Jewett EMS became a paid EMS service. On October 1, 2018, Jewett EMS began EMS operations for ESD 4. Today, Jewett EMS provides MICU level service to the cities of Jewett, Normangee, Marquez, Flynn, Buffalo, Oakwood and surrounding areas. Jewett EMS operates 3 stations in Jewett, Flynn and Buffalo. Jewett EMS has been on a mission to continually improve the quality of our service, equipment, facilities, and other aspects of our operation while remaining transparent to the citizens and our governing bodies.
