Emergency Response Ambulance
Emergency Response Ambulance Service was established in 1985 when Minidoka Memorial Hospital purchased the service from Minidoka County. Prior to that it had been a privately owned service. We now employ 5 full time and 25 part time Basic and Advanced EMTs. We are staffed 24 hours a day with a Basic and an Advanced EMT team and have another team on call should we need them. We have a fleet of three ambulances, three are four-wheel drive and a fourth mass casualty incident management unit currently ready to be deployed anywhere within the state if needed.
Emergency Response Ambulance provides emergency medical response and transport for Minidoka County with a service area of 762 miles and a population of 22,000 people. I-84 traverses the county east to west for approximately 15 miles. In addition, there are 72 miles of state highway in the county.

Emergency Response Ambulance also provides transportation to patients needing to go to Salt Lake, Idaho Falls, Twin Falls, Pocatello and Boise.
