The Sturgis/Meade County Ambulance Service currently serves the majority of the residents of Meade County.  The response area includes the I-90 corridor between exits 40 and 28, east to the Belle Fourche River, and north on Highway 79 to the Vale cut-off. This is a response area of approximately 575 square miles, primarily in Meade County.  The Ambulance Service also serves the Fort Meade Veterans’ Hospital by transporting patients to Rapid City Regional and other VA facilities both in and out of state.  Sturgis Regional Hospital utilizes the ambulance service for patient transports to and from other medical facilities in the Black Hills and as far away as Denver, CO, and Rochester, MN.

While you hope to never need them, these dedicated professionals are there when you need quality emergency medical care.

The South Dakota EMS Code requires every ambulance service to have a Board-certified doctor in charge of overseeing the medical care that is provided by EMTs and Paramedics.  This Medical Director defines what treatments EMS providers render when treating patients. 

The Sturgis Ambulance Service contracts with the Meade Rural Ambulance Board to provide services to a specific area outside city limits.
