Harnett County EMS has also been available to backup any and all of the contract EMS agencies throughout the county and provide non-emergency transport care for the hospitals, nursing homes, and the invalid citizens of Harnett County. When Harnett County EMS began, all of the employees were certified at the Emergency Medical Technician - Basic (Old EMT-B) level. They were able to provide only basic life support to the patients who were transported. Currently, our highly trained prehospital professionals are certified to the EMT, AEMT and Paramedic levels of care. Our mission statement states:
