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.
