Emergency Medical Services (EMS)

Essex County EMS

Essex County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) was established in 2011 as part of a collaborative effort to improve the emergency medical care to the citizens and visitors of Essex County. To supplement ambulance staffing that Tappahannock Volunteer Rescue Squad (TVRS) has provided since its establishment in 1952, the county hired full-time and part-time Advanced Life Support (ALS) providers to maintain continuity of services to the community. Our staff and volunteers are certified to a minimum of the Basic Life Support (BLS) level as well as being cross-trained in firefighting. This allows our team to respond to various types of emergencies in your time of need.
