What We Do

What We Do

As first responders for our community, it is our job to preserve human life and provide the best quality of medical care. Upon arrival, our highly trained, certified Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics provide the critical and timely care needed and, if necessary, transport our patients to an appropriate medical facility.

How We Do It

How We Do It

ESD No. 1 has two active ambulances, known in the industry as Mobile Intensive Care Units (MICU), and one backup unit. These ambulances assist our first responders with providing a very high level of care and are stocked with some of the most advanced equipment available, tailored specifically for our district’s size and distance and from our region’s primary trauma-capable medical facilities, Dell Seton Medical Center or Dell Children’s.

Our services are provided through a contract with the nonprofit organization San Marcos Hays County EMS.
