Rowan County Medical Responder Program

Originally instituted in the late 1980's, the Medical Responder Program is implemented to provide an additional level of response capability to the citizens of Rowan County needing medical assistance. The program is part of the County's Emergency Medical Services (EMS) System Plan, utilizing trained responders certified to a minimum level of NC Medical Responder or higher, and operates under the day-to-day oversight by the EMS Division & the Division's Medical Director.  Program coordination is provided by EMS Division Lieutenant Daniel Robinson.

All responders are affiliated with a Medical Responder Agency, which receives approval to operate by the Department of Emergency Services and the Rowan County Board of Commissioners. All of the county's fire departments individually serve as medical responder agencies for their respective districts.

Entities serving as a Medical Responder Agency receive their operational guideance through several documents, including:


Each Medical Respnder Agency designates one of it's personnel as a Medical Responder Coordinator, who provides general oversight of the program's functionality at the individual agency/department level. The Coordinators meet 4 times a year to discuss current general operations and to provide a forum for all of the agencies and the EMS Division. The current meeting schedule is:
