Dickinson Public Safety
With the adoption of the FY 2006 budget, the Mayor and City Council made Dickinson Public Safety the permanent emergency medical services provider for the city.
Changes Within Our Service
On October 1, 2013 Dickinson Public Safety changed names and became Dickinson Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Along with the change in name came a change in our structure and organization.
With Dickinson EMS separating from the Fire Marshal's Office Dickinson EMS became it's own department within the city and now operates from its own budget from the general fund. Dickinson EMS now solely focuses on providing emergency care and transport of sick or injured citizens and visitors in the City of Dickinson, along with providing public health outreach and education.
In 2021, Dickinson EMS responded to approximately 2,400 emergency calls for service.
Ambulances are staffed with paramedics 24 hours per day operating from the City of Dickinson Central Fire Station. The response area Dickinson EMS serves is approximately 15 square miles. This includes the City of Dickinson and surrounding unincorporated Galveston County.
All open records requests are now processed online through the Public Portal. Please be advised that due to HIPAA federal regulations, all requests involving protected health information require a completed and signed patient release to be uploaded with any request not made by the patient in the record(s).
