Sublette County Emergency Medical Services (EMS)
Who We Are
Sublette County Rural Health Care District Emergency Medical Services operates three, 24/7 ambulance stations in Pinedale, Marbleton/Big Piney and the Sand Draw industrial area on Highway 191. 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
CPR - First Aid and Automatic Defibrillator (AED) training is offered monthly to the public for the cost of materials, only, at both our Pinedale and Marbleton Stations.
Emergency Medical Responder and Emergency Medical Technician Basic courses are offered routinely at the Pinedale Station.
EMS professionals are also available to speak on a variety of topics at your event or meetings.
On April 10th, the Sublette County Rural Health Care District Emergency Medical Service (EMS) was approved as a Paramedic EMS Provider. The Wyoming EMS Physician's Task force, made up of 7 doctors from across the state, and the Wyoming Board of Medicine unanimously approved the Paramedic status change. Previously our EMS was at the Emergency Medical Technician Intermediate level. With this newest update, our county EMS will be able to provide the highest level of out of hospital care possible for our citizens.
Increases in emergency cardiac, medical and trauma care now will mean that the most advanced care possible will respond to emergencies in Sublette County.

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.
