Coshocton Co. EMS began in 1976 when the Volunteer Emergency Squads in the Villages of Warsaw and West Lafayette were joined with the newly formed Volunteer Emergency Squads in the City of Coshocton and the Keene Community into a County EMS system. On February 16, 1976, these 4 stations were brought together to become what is known today as Coshocton Co. EMS (CCEMS).
Today, CCEMS has 3 stations located in Coshocton, Warsaw and West Lafayette. These stations are staffed 24/7 by a paid crew, usually consisting of a Paramedic and an EMT. We staff 4 crews each day and night.
CCEMS is the sole 911 Emergency Medical Provider for Coshocton County. We cover 564 square miles and run approximately 6,000 calls per year. CCEMS currently employs 55 full-time and part-time EMT’s and Paramedics.
