Board of Ambulance
The Board of County Commissioners, in its capacity of the governing board of the Kootenai County Ambulance District, is ultimately,
responsible for county-wide emergency medical services (EMS). These services are provided through a joint governed organization known as the
Kootenai County Emergency Medical Services System (KCEMSS). As the Ambulance Board, the Board of County Commissioners approves the annual KCEMSS
operating budget and levies the balance necessary to fund the approved budget under the Emergency Medical Services Levy. Additionally, the
County Commission appoints a member to the KCEMSS Joint Powers Board, the joint governing body. This member is Commissioner Jai Nelson.
KCEMSS is a fire-based ambulance service providing 9-1-1 emergency care and facility to facility transfers throughout Kootenai County.
KCEMSS operates through a network of agencies, including all the fire departments within Kootenai County and two non-profit EMS organizations.
KCEMSS provides EMS services up to and including paramedic services. It also provides Critical Care Transport services to the hospitals
within Kootenai County as well as hospitals in the surrounding counties of North Idaho. For more information, please visit the KCEMSS
