Baptist Ambulance has begun responding to all 9-1-1 calls within Tipton County. The Tipton County Commission selected Baptist Ambulance to provide exclusive 911 emergency ambulance service to the county through a competitive request for proposal process earlier this year.
Baptist Ambulance will staff five ambulances 24 hours a day, seven days a week with an additional ambulance available to be staffed by a supervisor during times of high call volume. Baptist Ambulance's vehicles will be furnished with new, advanced medical equipment, such as the latest model cardiac monitors and power stretchers. Baptist Ambulance is the preferred ambulance service provider for Baptist Memorial Health Care, which includes Baptist Memorial Hospital-Tipton located in the county.
