As one of only two emergency medical services agencies in the county, Southeast Colorado Hospital Ambulance Service takes seriously the responsibility to provide our citizens with the high quality care they need.
The ambulance team—now comprised of four full-time staff and a handful of dedicated volunteers and part time workers—logs thousands of hours and miles during an average year in addition to hours of training to keep certifications current.
Currently, SECH Ambulance Service runs two full-service ambulances, two transfer ambulances, and a Quick Response Team unit based in Campo, Colorado. Click here for an article describing our current status.
Services provided by SECH Ambulance Service include:

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.
