Schertz EMS is a department of the City of Schertz that provides emergency medical services and ambulance transportation to the greater Randolph Region. We began as a volunteer group of local citizens who responded to help their neighbors. The organization, known as the Schertz Area Facility for Emergency Services or SAFES began operations on April 1, 1974, providing ambulance services to Schertz and the surrounding area. This organization grew, matured and eventually became a full-time paid department within the city and was renamed to Schertz EMS on October 1, 2000.
For the third year in a row, Schertz EMS has received the American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline® EMS Gold Plus Award for implementing quality improvement measures for the treatment of patients who experience severe heart attacks.
“Schertz EMS is dedicated to providing the highest possible care for heart attack patients,” said EMS Director Jason Mabbitt. “We are pleased to be recognized for Gold Plus for our 3rd consecutive year and could not do it without our dedicated employees.”
