Together, we offer a comprehensive and integrated approach to emergency care from the field to the bedside. Our services include:

Why We're Different
What Sets West Georgia Ambulance Apart?
Our History
We're keeping the promise we made beginning in 1977.


When Steve Adams, a longtime member of Tanner Health System’s board of directors, and two other partners bought West Georgia Ambulance in 1977, not many areas of the country had a dedicated 911 service.

Carroll County was among the first, making West Georgia Ambulance one of the nation’s first 911 providers.

Since that time, West Georgia Ambulance has kept the promise of that contract. Our network has grown to six county EMS stations — Bowdon, Clem, north Carrollton, south Carrollton, Temple and Villa Rica. We are dedicated to providing excellent service, delivering timely response, and serving as an integral and active member of the community.

Tanner Health System purchased West Georgia Ambulance in 2022, assuring that promise continues.

Tanner joins other regional health systems in operating ambulance services, including Atrium Health Floyd in Rome and Grady Health in Atlanta.

Our Experience
We maintain one of the nation's longest, continually held 911 contracts.

For nearly 50 years, West Georgia Ambulance has held the 911 EMS Zone License for Carroll County, making it one of the nation’s longest, continually held 911 contracts.

This milestone demonstrates the confidence that the Georgia Department of Public Health’s Regional EMS Advisory Council has in West Georgia Ambulance’s ability to provide for the public health. In 2022, West Georgia Ambulance’s contract was approved for renewal and is active through 2028.

West Georgia Ambulance offers basic, intermediate and advanced life support and critical care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We have 14 ambulances, staffed by 27 full-time paramedics and 20 full-time emergency medical technicians (EMTs), as well as a team of part-time paramedics and EMTs. Our staff includes our own dedicated fleet maintenance department, as well as billing.

Our Community Outreach
We believe we are better together.

At West Georgia Ambulance, we believe we are better together. That’s why we are active and engaged members of the Carroll County community. You’ll see us staffing local sports events and festivals or visiting local schools in our role as an active member of the Carroll County School System Safety Summit.

At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, West Georgia Ambulance provided medical emergency oversight for Tanner Health System’s COVID-19 vaccine clinics.

We also partner with Tanner Health System’s cardiac services team to present free CPR classes throughout the year. The one-hour classes are designed to teach families the fundamentals of CPR and provide a free take-home kit.

Disaster Response Training and Preparedness 


West Georgia Ambulance actively trains with other Carroll County agencies under the oversight of the Emergency Management Division of the Department of Public Safety in Carroll County in the event of a county-wide emergency or disaster.

Our vital training and preparedness roles include testing and maintaining equipment, testing and updating emergency plans and procedures, coordinating drills and exercises, and providing emergency preparedness resources to the public. Along with Emergency Management, we work with law enforcement, fire/rescue, public works, public schools, public health, nonprofits, municipalities and business owners.

A representative of West Georgia Ambulance also staffs Carroll County’s Emergency Operations Center, when activated, to serve as supervisory command personnel. In this role, we help coordinate and manage response to large-scale disasters by prioritizing emergency calls.
