Wellman EMS History: 1976 - 2014
Wellman Ambulance was founded in 1976 by a group of caring residents that realized the need for immediate medical response to our neighbors and friends. We had humble beginnings back then. However, we have grown over the past 36 years based on the needs of the community and the dedication of our volunteer members.
Today, Wellman Ambulance operates with a highly qualified staff of eleven (11) volunteers on a 24/7 basis. With over 100+ emergency responses a year, Wellman Ambulance provides superior response time to ambulance calls with highly trained and motivated emergency medical personnel. Wellman Ambulance is considered one of the finest EMS organizations in Washington County and that is because of our dedicated members.
Numerous Wellman Ambulance volunteer members have joined the medical community as Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, and Paramedics. Other members have utilized the ambulance corps as a stepping stone to other professional careers.
And beyond medical emergencies, Wellman Ambulance reaches out to the community with various programs to prepare and educate the public on First Aid and CPR with a variety of emergency-related educational materials.
Wellman Ambulance has served the community for the last 36 years. We are pleased that you cared enough to read about us. In order to continue the tradition within Wellman Ambulance of "neighbors helping neighbors", perhaps you will join us as a volunteer.
Whether you join us as a volunteer or by making a donation, we very much appreciate the support you have provided to us over these many years.
