Emergency Medical Services
Edgefield County EMS is responsible for providing basic and advanced care for medical and traumatic emergencies. The Department provides these services to a 502 square-mile area with over 26,000 residents. A staff of 23 full-time employees and 11 part-time as needed employees operating from two stations with three ambulances provide these services. Edgefield County understands the needs and demands of small rural systems and when call volume exceed resources there are mutual aid agreements with surrounding counties to reduce wait times.
Edgefield County EMS has been recognized by the American Heart Association by receiving their Mission Lifeline Bronze award in 2017, the Mission Lifeline Silver award in 2018 and the Gold Plus Mission Lifeline Award in 2019.
The mission of Edgefield County EMS is to provide comprehensive, quality and appropriate emergency prehospital care to all people in a professional and caring manner.

ICE (In Case of Emergency):
A campaign encouraging people to enter an emergency contact number in their mobile phone’s memory under the heading “ICE” (for “In Case of Emergency”), has rapidly spread throughout the world. ICE allows paramedics or police to be able to contact a designated relative/next-of-kin in an emergency situation. Almost everyone carries a mobile phone now, and with ICE we’d know immediately who to contact and what number to call. The designated person may even know of your medical history. It only takes a few seconds to do, and it could easily help save your life.
Edgefield County EMS also offers CPR/AED AND Basic First Aid Classes – Taught through the American Heart Association
Due to the materials required for the classes, we ask that you schedule two weeks in advance. The cost for classes for the general public are $60.00 per student regardless of combination, $40.00 per student for fire department volunteers/first responders and $30.00 per student for county employees.
Please contact Mike Butler at 803-637-4098 to schedule a class. Minimum class size is 6 students.
