Sand Lake Ambulance is a combination of a volunteer and paid agency. SLA is run exclusively by volunteer members. To raise our level of services and improve response times, we supplement our volunteer staff who cover nights and week-ends by hiring paid paramedics to be in-house 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We also hire an emergency medical technician (EMTs) to be on duty between the hours of 6 AM and 6PM seven days a week and on Saturday night. We have volunteer day time drivers to assist the paramedic and EMT during the day as well as volunteer drivers in the evening. This has allowed us to keep our response times and level of care among the best in the county.
