Ambulance Service Area

The Deschutes County Board of Commissioners will hold a Public Hearing to grant or deny approval to local franchises to continue providing emergency ambulance service in the County. The Board will make its decisions based on recommendations from the Deschutes County Ambulance Service Area (ASA) Committee, which recently concluded a 30-day application process and review. Please refer to the County events page for the meeting agenda.

Deschutes County Code 8.30 establishes ambulance services areas, assigns emergency ambulance service providers, creates an ambulance service area advisory committee, provides penalties and prescribes effective dates. 

ASA Administrator: Tom Kuhn, thomas.kuhn@deschutes.org
ASA Chair: Doug Kelly, doug.kelly@redmondfireandrescue.org
