Cabell County EMS began originally as a part of the Sheriff’s department, or S.T.O.P. (Sheriffs Technical Officers Patrol) in 1974. Since the department’s inception the goal has been to provide fast and compassionate care for the critically ill and injured citizens of Cabell County and the City of Huntington. The department has progressed from its roots into a separate department, under the direction of A. Gordon Merry III, that deals not only with emergency medicine but with any emergency that faces anyone in Cabell County.
CCEMS operates 17 ambulances in 8 stations throughout Cabell County. We provide BLS, ALS, and Critical Care transport services as well as Emergency 911 Service for Cabell County and the City of Huntington.
*** NOTE *** Never assume an ambulance crew is in station!!!! Even though CCEMS Stations are staffed 24/7 365 days a year, crews may be out of the station at any given time. If you have an emergency, please call 911 so the most appropriate help can be sent to your location.
