Currently, Lake County Ambulance Service (LCAS) staffs two stations. The base of operations is located in the city of Two Harbors with a substation in Silver Bay. At least one ambulance is staffed at both locations 24 hours a day. LCAS has 30+ members with a mixture of EMTs and Paramedics. In October of 2013, LCAS became licensed at the Advanced Life Support level. Being able to provide an even higher level of advanced care at the scene of an incident and throughout transport is very beneficial to the health of our patients. LCAS is now even better equipped to handle critical patients at the scene and during transport. With this change patients also receive a higher level of care in the initial stages of treatment. Lake County Ambulance Service strives to provide the best possible patient care with the latest advanced technology equipment. Our employees continually attend training to keep up with current best practices in EMS.
