Emergency Medical Services

Castro County EMS is the 911 provider for all of Castro County. Our fleet of ambulances includes two Ford F-350's and one 2008 Ford E-350. All Castro County EMS vehicles are certified at the Basic Life Support/Mobile Intensive Care Unit levels. Our highly trained staff includes six full-time personnel consisting of four EMT- Paramedics, one EMT-Intermediate and one EMT- Basic. In addition to this staff, we have four part time EMT-Intermediates and three part time EMT-basics. Castro County EMS operates under the auspices SPEMS (South Plains Emergency Medical Services) and our protocols are updated yearly to ensure the most advanced and up-to-date care standards are given. We also work closely with first responder agencies in the communities of Nazareth and Hart as well as with city and county fire and law enforcement officials.

Castro County EMS operates out of Plains Memorial Hospital in Dimmitt. We consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have access to such an excellent medical staff for our patients that need immediate stabilization.
