Cleveland County EMS is more than just an ambulance service, it’s an organization that encourages its people to pursue knowledge, hands on training and experience in other areas. Just in this last year some people have taken classes in SwiftWater Rescue (SRT1), SMAT III, Collapsed Structure, Trench Rescue, Search and Rescue (SAR), USAR, Rappelling – high and low angle, Confined Space Rescue, Incident Command Team, and Disaster Medicine.

We also are community driven. We teach Kid Tips to the County’s kindergarteners, the Safe Teens Programs are held at the high schools (with nurses and State Troopers) aimed at 15 and 16 year olds about to become new drivers. There is a Texting While Driving Class we participated in with NC Highway Patrol. Prom Promise is a large event utilizing all resources in our area to put on a mock car accident at a local high school teaching the students about drinking and driving.  We also helped set up several hands on stations like extrication, rappelling, GPS, and the burn building at the community college for the Boys Scout Rendezvous. Our service and its people are busy doing what we do the best; helping the community and working together to increase knowledge and skills in order to better serve.
