Currently, SECH Ambulance Service runs two full-service ambulances, one transfer ambulance, an Advanced Life Support (ALS) Intercept Unit, and a Quick Response Team unit based in Campo, Colorado. Click here for an article describing our current status.

Supporting SECH Ambulance

Springfield EMS Association supports the ambulance service in various ways.

First, they seek funding in order to help keep our EMS teams updated with the highest quality equipment and skills. This includes grant-writing, fundraisers, and at times, purchasing top-of-the-line equipment like cardiac monitors/defibrillators.

In addition, the EMS Association provides educational opportunities to keep our community a safe and healthy place to live and work.
