Our mission is to provide the highest quality pre-hospital care. We recognize that each patient has individual needs which comprise the total person and we have the responsibility to assist patients with their healthcare needs. We support a positive work environment.
Respect: We support the intentional affirmation that all human beings are gifted with life and uniqueness and deserve to be treated with dignity.
Integrity: We create and maintain an atmosphere of trust, honesty, sincerity, and unshakable professional ethics.
Compassion: We support the individualized caring and comforting offered as healthcare providers. We listen with sensitivity to others viewpoints, making every effort to hear rather than to judge, and using tact and diplomacy to resolve conflict.
Professionalism: We accept the challenge and responsibility to maintain the highest standard of excellence in Emergency Medical Services. We continually strive to determine and meet the needs of those we serve and measure our performance.
We commit our knowledge, skills, time, and resources to provide professional emergency medical services for the Charlton County community that exceeds the needs and expectations of those who require our assistance.
The Charlton County Emergency Medical Services provides 24-hour emergency care. There are two locations in Charlton County:
- Station 1 is located on Rosa Parks Road in Folkston
- Station 2 is located on George Avenue in St. George
EMS became an entity of the Charlton County Commission in May, 2012. Since then, we have purchased four new ambulances and are able to service the entire county effectively. These ambulances are equipped with state of the art Advanced Life Support equipment. We are able to transmit EKG's directly to the Emergency Room while in transit in an effort to better save lives.
Due to the increase in the number of calls the county had to add an additional crew and move the EMS team to the old Bethune school in order to have more room for the emergency personnel. Below are some pictures of our new location.
