Emergency Medical Services
Duplin County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is responsible for providing emergency medical treatment and transport of the sick and injured throughout the County of Duplin. Duplin County EMS strives to provide an exceptional quality of prehospital care and promote the overall improvement of individual health through unselfish dedication to our communities and perpetual support of our own prehospital providers.
Duplin County EMS serves as the primary EMS agency in Duplin County providing eight paramedic ambulances to eight EMS districts that covers the 816 square mile county. Support is provided by one supervisory EMS Officer operating a paramedic level QRV and two administrative EMS Officers. Our agency is also supported by two volunteer EMS agencies functioning at the Advanced EMT (AEMT) level out of the Chinquapin and Pleasant Grove Volunteer Fire Departments. We also have six volunteer emergency medical responder (EMR) agencies that operate out of Calypso, Faison, Fountaintown, Magnolia, Oak Wolfe, Pink Hill, and Teachey Volunteer Fire Departments.
All billing for EMS services is contracted with EMS Management and Consultants (EMSMC).
