Harnett County EMS has been in existence since 1978 providing emergency care to the citizens of Harnett County. 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 EMS-Basic (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:

Important update: Due to recent changes in our Reverse 911 / County Mass Notification System, (System where we can send out critical information by landline or cellular phone to the county) We have had to change systems. Anyone that has ever registered for our previous reverse 911 must re-register with our new site. Anyone that has never previously registered that is wishing to add your mobile phone to this system must register as well.
