South Howell County Ambulance District was formed by a vote of the public in August of 1974. The district began ambulance operations at midnight February 15, 1975. Operations started with two full-time employees and several volunteers staffing two “hearse” style ambulances. In the mid 1980’s the District began the evolution from a BLS to an ALS service.
