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:

Harnett County EMS would like to congratulate Paramedic/FTO’s Justin Saunders and Morgan Langdon on winning the North Carolina OEMS Regional Paramedic Competition.
They competed July 13, 2018 at Fayetteville Tech CC Regional Testing Site bringing home the Top Award for the region. They will now advance to the State Paramedic Competition on September 30, 2018 at the Four Seasons Convention Center in Greensboro, NC during the 2018 NC EMS Expo. This is the first team from Harnett County EMS to ever advance to the State Paramedic Competition.
Please join us in congratulating this team as they work hard in preparing for the State Paramedic Competition.
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.
