The Jefferson Emergency Rescue District provides Emergency Medical Services to the Village and Township of Jefferson, Ohio, in Ashtabula County.
The District first started in 1975 as a volunteer department, and became a full-time department in 1998. Two crew-members staff an ALS equipped ambulance 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, with at least one Paramedic on shift at all times.
Currently, Jefferson Rescue has 3 fully stocked ambulances ready to respond to medical emergencies, as well as 5 Full-time Paramedics, 11 Part-time Paramedics, and 4 Part-time EMT’s. In the event that the staffed EMS unit is unavailable due to being out on a call, Jefferson Rescue has 13 members who live within, or in close proximity to, the response area, and will report to the station for any second out response. Should personnel not be available to respond, Jefferson Rescue has mutual aid agreements with neighboring agencies to respond and assist as necessary, and will at times respond and provide assistance to those agencies as well.
Jefferson Rescue offers a number of resources to our community, including but not limited to:
Free blood pressure checks at our station
Monthly CPR, AED and First Aid training courses
Bleeding Control course
Blood-borne Pathogens course
Reflective address signs
Vial of Life and more...
