Welcome to REMSA (Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority)REMSA is located in Reno, Nevada and is the exclusive ground and helicopter ambulance provider for Washoe County, including the Cities of Sparks and Reno. REMSA's Care Flight helicopter also serves all of Northern Nevada and Northeastern California.
Since its inception in 1986, REMSA (Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority) has been a non profit community service. REMSA has dramatically improved the quality and responsiveness of emergency services in the Truckee Meadows for over 24 years.
REMSA has grown from a company of 50 employees in 1986 to over 330 in 2010. With its growth, REMSA has become an integral part of the Health Care community, not just an ambulance/helicopter service. One of the major reasons for REMSA's success is that, over the past 24 years, we have been flexible and adaptive to the changing health care environment. Our emergency medical system (EMS) is constantly undergoing fine-tuning and review. High quality equipment, continuing education, certified Emergency Medical Dispatchers and national recognition make REMSA one of the best-known EMS systems in the nation.
With the large population growth seen in Nevada since REMSA's inception, the Reno-Sparks area has seen phenomenal expansion during the same period. REMSA continues to meet the challenge of providing the highest quality Advanced Life Support with the fastest response times possible, at the lowest competitive price.
