911 Emergency Services

 

Wayne County EMS is the sole provider of 911 EMS services for the Monticello, Wayne County area. All Ambulances are equipped with emergency life saving  equipment and work in direct contact with an Emergency Room Doctor, if needed.

Critical trauma patients, when necessary, are flown directly from the scene of an accident to a trauma center, based on the patient's needs, by either the Paramedic or EMT. This type of rapid transport is especially important to patients with life-threatening injuries due to the transport time involved in taking them by ground.

Except for the most serious cases, patients have a choice, within reason, of what hospital they are transported to during an emergency. The hospitals most often selected are Wayne County Hospital, Lake Cumberland Hospital and Clinton County Hospital.

 

Hospital to Hospital Critical Care Transfers

 

At times the local hospital does not have twenty-four hour access to many specialty services that can be found at the larger hospitals. When a patient arrives at a local hospital and it is determined that transfer to a larger hospital is appropriate, the patient is usually transported either by helicopter or by ground ambulance.

Non-Emergency Ambulance Transportation

 

Many patients require non-emergent transportation to the hospital, dialysis center or physician's office but are not able to walk or sit in a chair due to their medical condition. These are often elderly patients or those with chronic medical conditions that cause severe weakness, decreased mental status or contractions.

 

 

Special Event EMS Coverage

 

Wayne County EMS provides special event coverage for events requiring EMS availability on-site. These events are generally those involving large gatherings where the possibility of an event participant or spectator becoming ill or injured is likely. 

There are two types of event coverage offered by Wayne County EMS:

 

Dedicated and Non-Dedicated. For dedicated event coverage an EMS unit is assigned to the event and will not leave to handle calls outside the event. Dedicated units are paid for by the organization hosting the event unless event is non-profit. Non-dedicated event coverage is free within our 911 coverage area, however the unit may be required to leave the event to handle other calls.
