The Emergency Management System begins with the contact to the 911 Center requesting assistance (How to use 911). Response is delivered from one of the seven volunteer fire companies or five volunteer rescue squads, or the County EMS unit. If the situation is beyond the capabilities of these resources, the Department of Emergency Services is requested for support as directed by operational guidelines.
During emergencies, the Department of Emergency Service plans, implements and coordinates a response as outlined in the County Emergency Operating Plan. Louisa County is unique since we must plan and prepare for emergencies at the North Anna Nuclear Power Station under the Radiological Emergency Response Plan.
Louisa County's Department of Fire & Emergency Services and most of the volunteer rescue squads and fire companies are members of the Thomas Jefferson EMS Council http://www.tjems.org. The TJEMS Council provides its member agencies assistance with recruitment, retention and training of emergency medical service providers. It also provides emergency preparedness exercises and all required continuing education for EMS personnel and volunteers to maintain certification levels.
