Experience the Central EMS Difference

Central EMS is one of the largest privately owned ambulance providers in the Southeast. The company was founded in 1982 as Central Ambulance with the belief that the public deserves high-quality patient care and excellent customer service in an ambulance provider, while still remaining cost-effective. In 2004, the company was rebranded Central EMS. Today, Central EMS transports approximately 50,000 patients annually with more than 100 vehicles in our fleet.
