EMS Inspection Program
The Emergency Medical Services program consists of inspections and licensing of ambulances. There are several ambulance services that operate over 30 ambulance units within Pueblo County. This program indirectly affects all residents of Pueblo County, since any of those residents may require the services of these emergency vehicles.
The legal authority appointing the Health Department as the agency responsible for enforcing the ambulance-licensing requirement is the Pueblo County Resolution 92-337 § 1(E).
Staff & Equipment
The main program objective is to assure through inspections and licensing that all Emergency Medical Services are properly staffed and equipped for daily operations. This is done by confirming the emergency medical service staff has the proper State Certification for the required level of emergency medical practices. Ambulances are also checked to verify each has the proper medical equipment and safety gear.
Ambulance services must complete the forms to the right of this page prior to inspection. Pre-inspection checklists have also been provided for basic life support and advanced life support ambulances. There is a $100 Ambulance Service License Fee as well as an $85 Ambulance Vehicle Permit Fee per vehicle. Checks will be made payable to the Pueblo City-County Health Department or PCCHD. All applicants regardless of governmental or private corporation status are required to submit the above-stated application fees.
