Why Join
Northwest Ambulance?

Northwest Ambulance was founded in 2007 by a Snohomish County Fire Fighter/Paramedic who saw a need for an enhanced level of private ambulance service. At NWA, we provide the best care and customer service to patients and facilities, but also balance that with respect and pride for our employees.

Being a private, locally owned ambulance company allows us to re-invest profits back into the company - which means we offer industry leading wages for our employees and best-in class equipment for our ambulances!
