May 21-27 is National Emergency Medical Service Week.  During this week, the Kiowa County Ambulance Service will be honoring volunteers that have stepped forward giving up quality time with their families to provide care for community members in their time of need.  The volunteers are few, but dedicated, and take care of the situations that come our way no matter what.  They are your everyday heroes.  You are all very much appreciated, thank you for all you do.

During the past few years, the Kiowa County Ambulance Service has become one of the strongest agencies within the county.  Just to name a few of the accomplishments we have achieved:  We have provided education to our schools, community members and other agencies within the County.  The agency has participated in training exercises, to enhance our skills while working with other agencies.  The director has acquired grants to provide funding for much needed equipment, and updated ambulances.
