Call our 24hr dispatch for all your transport needs


Northwest Ambulance is a private ambulance service that started in 2007 by a local Firefighter / Paramedic, Chris Smith. Chris saw a need for locally operated ambulance service in the Pacific Northwest and it became his goal to provide this service to his community. Today the service is run by a General Manager / Executive Director, Operations Manager, a 24hr Medical Services Officer and a special projects division. These dedicated professionals assure that every detail is perfect and the day to day operations runs smoothly.

We will always provide excellent service to our community and our customers. Each one of our staff is dedicated to our clients, facilities and customers that we serve each day.

We are not trying to be the biggest ambulance service around, we are trying to be the best!

“Our RN’s and EMT’s consistently amaze me with their skill, compassion, and dedication. Their commitment to excellent patient care is unmatched.”

― Jeremy Yoder, General Manager / Regional Director
