Sublette County Emergency Medical Services (EMS)
Who We Are
Sublette County Rural Health Care District Emergency Medical Services operates two, 24/7 ambulance stations in both Pinedale and Marbleton. The EMS Department is comprised of 24 full-time and up to 20 part-time staff members consisting of basic, advanced and paramedic skill levels which gives Sublette County EMS its ability to provide quality, out-of-hospital emergency care. Staff is trained in the latest cardiac care including 12-lead ECG recognition, stroke and trauma critical care. In addition to the 3 static units in the corners of the county, we also man an additional 12-hour transfer ambulance from the Pinedale Station to transport patients to Jackson, Rock Springs, Idaho Falls and Salt Lake City.
Cooperation with other Emergency Services
Sublette County EMS works very closely with the Sublette County Sheriff's office and the 9-1-1 Communications Center, Tip Top Search and Rescue, Sublette County Emergency Management, the Sublette County Health Department and all fire/rescue services in our county. In order to provide the best possible care to our residents, cooperative training and procedures, along with coordinated co-response to many critical emergencies, is a fact of life for EMS in Sublette County.
Community Outreach and Emergency Education
Emergency Medical Responder and Emergency Medical Technician Basic courses are offered routinely at the Pinedale Station.
The Rural Health Care District is proud to unveil the newest addition to our EMS fleet. With the addition of full time paramedic coverage in the fall of 2014, it is extremely important that we have the appropriate transportation to ensure the safest response time to the residents of Sublette County. We have added a fully equipped Advanced Life Support Rapid Response Vehicle, which the Health District had budgeted to stay in line with the current vehicle rotation plan. It is a 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe, purchased with only 16,000 miles on it from a fire company that had turned in their fleet. We were fortunate to obtain the rig, in next to new condition, for a fraction of the cost of a new vehicle. The purpose of this type of vehicle is to reduce the time in which it takes EMS to get initial care to patients.

Comfort One DNR Program
COMFORT ONE® is the name of a statewide program designed to allow a Wyoming citizen to refuse cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in Wyoming. The program is administered through the Wyoming Department of Health, Office of Emergency Medical Services Programs. Historically, unless special arrangements were made, standard Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders or other advance directives were not generally honored in an emergency situation outside of the hospital. The program, originally implemented to alert emergency ambulance personnel that an individual was "DNR", Comfort One® is now recognized by itself or in conjunction with a properly executed Living Will or Durable Power of Attorney for Medical Decisions.
