Emergency Medical Services (EMS)

Cattaraugus County EMS Coordinator - Robert Kuhn

Emergency medical services includes the 33 State-certified ambulance and first response agencies in Cattaraugus County.  Of the 33, 25 are organized within a fire department, while the remaining 8 are independent organizations.  Only those independent EMS agencies are able to bill for service.

Cattaraugus County is the basic life support EMS course sponsor for the county, meaning that we coordinate all certified first responder (CFR) and emergency medical technician (EMT) training.  Courses are held throughout the county as needed to meet the EMS agencies' needs.  Click here for more information about EMS training.
