Volunteering to Care
Philosophy and Purpose
Mission
To provide exceptional pre-hospital care and education for the rural communities we serve, through the formal cooperation of local governments and dedicated volunteers.

Pre-Hospital Care
Our organization provides emergency care and medical transport using advanced treatment techniques and sophisticated patient care equipment. Clinical and non-clinical services are evaluated through an internal quality assurance program to maintain and improve the quality of care provided and to assure patient scarification.

Patient Care Team
Must be exceptional people who are dedicated to emergency medical care and their role in its provision. Must be team players that are motivated to achieve, have high standards of quality and integrity, be supportive of new concepts, and be interested in being contributors.

Organizational Stability
WAEMS is a Non-Taxing Governmental Authority that is owned, operated and ultimately responsible to the communities it serves. In order to provide quality services, WAEMS must be financially viable. Financial stability insures our ability, on a long-term basis; to continue serving the emergency care needs of the citizens who reside in the communities we serve.

Educational Focus
The delivery of pre-hospital care is constantly changing and improving. Our organization must always learn new and improved methods, which benefit our patients and the care we provide. As our knowledge increases, our ability to assess and treat patient’s needs will increase. We will actively promote EMS education and training for the public and staff.

Leadership
Well-maintained and amply supplied units will be provided for our patients and staff. Continuous thought and attention will be given to promote growth and comments. WAEMS will take a leadership role in the development of this area’s pre-hospital care system.
