Located in the extreme northwest corner of Illinois, the Galena Area Emergency Medical Service District is a volunteer, BLS level service. The District serves 9 townships and three municipalities centered around historic Galena, Illinois.
In 1977, the first EMT class was completed; by January 1978 the Galena Area 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 Galena-Stauss Medical Campus. Our original building, constructed in 1985, has been renovated to include meeting rooms, two sleeping areas, staff lounge, two offices, and three ambulance bays.
