Welcome to

Medics First

Much more than an ambulance service provider - Medics First is a vital community partner, deeply invested in the betterment of the people we serve. While our paramedic ambulances earned their stripes responding to hundreds of thousands of emergencies, Medics First has evolved and grown as a team dedicated to a comprehensive set of community healthcare initiatives.

In 2008, Medics First was founded on three core principles for delivering superior emergency care:

  • Build strong relationships throughout the healthcare community.
  • Hold paramedics to a higher standard.
  • Provide a better workplace to attract top professionals.

In August of 2019, Medics First was purchased by Advanced Medical Transport, a nationally-accredited and recognized regional Emergency Medical Services provider, based in central Illinois. As a member of the AMT family, Medics First will become Springfield’s first not-for-profit ambulance service, operated for community benefit, and guided by a community-based Board of Directors.
