New Castle County EMS was the first paramedic service in the First State, and celebrated their 30th Anniversary of advanced life support delivery in 2005. It is only fitting that we have expanded our outreach activities to include a presence on the world wide web.
New Castle County EMS is a multi-jurisdictional county municipal paramedic service covering the entire 437 square miles and over 525,000 residents of New Castle County, Delaware. We are proud of the men and women of the agency who exemplify their commitment to “Excellence in Service” each and every day.
The New Castle County paramedics deliver one of the most visible services of the county government--at one of the most personal levels of constituent interaction. Our service to the public extends beyond the 9-1-1 emergency responses, and includes such initiatives as Community CPR Training, Child Passenger Safety Seat Inspections, “SLAM” Crash Injury Prevention Program, and the Heroin Alert Program. The EMS Special Operations Group currently provides paramedics for the department’s Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team and Bike Medics for special event and all-terrain medical support. We encourage you to explore our site, and welcome your comments and suggestions via our e-mail address. Again, welcome to New Castle County EMS!
