Medical / EMS
Vertex Construction repurposed the former Cleveland Elementary School into the West Rowan Emergency Medical Service (EMS) Station 88. This station provides housing quarters for EMS personnel, an office, equipment room, bathroom, and ambulance. A two-person crew is maintained.
The location of this station will shave off 8-10 minutes in response time. Quick response time to Daimler Trucks North America and other businesses, nearby schools, and the residential area is a great asset to the community.
Rowan County Emergency Medical Services is provided through Rowan County. Rowan County EMS is partially funded by general tax revenues and partially by fees charged to users. The service is licensed by the North Carolina Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS) and employs 65 full and 52 part-time paramedics and emergency medical technicians.
