Our Mission

The mission of the Galena Area Emergency Medical Technicians is to contribute to the quality of life within the Galena Area Emergency Medical Service District and to provide quality emergency medical services to all who reside and visit our area.

Our Vision

To provide the best possible medical services to the residents of the town and villages of Galena, Menominee, Scales Mound, the Galena Territory, and the surrounding rural areas and to provide medical and safety education to those communities. To foster interest in all matters pertaining to the volunteer service and to promote the welfare and social advances of all volunteer emergency medical services.

About Us

Located in the extreme northwest corner of Illinois, the Galena Area Emergency Medical Service District is a volunteer, BLS level service. The District serves 8 townships and three municipalities centered around the historic Galena, Illinois.

In 1977, the first EMT class was completed, by January 1978 the Galena EMS District was formed. The service provides treatment and emergency transport to Midwest Medical, Mercy-Dubuque Health Center, and Unity Point-Finley Hospital.

The home base is located on the campus of the Galena-Stauss Medical. Our original building, constructed in 1985, has been renovated to include meeting rooms, two sleeping areas, staff lounge, two offices, and three ambulance bays.
