Emergency Medical Services

Avery County Emergency Medical Services began operations on October 1, 1994. We currently operate at the EMT-Paramedic level with twenty one full time employees and approximately twenty part time employees.

We are staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week with at least two crews and a field supervisor.

Monday through Friday, we operate and schedule a day crew from part time employees in addition to the two crews. The day crew is staffed from 9:30 am - 6:00 pm and responds from the main station in Newland.

One 24 hour crew is assigned to the Newland base and one crew is assigned to the Banner Elk base located at the bottom of Beech Mountain Parkway on Beech Haven Road.
