In 2020 the departments of EMS and Fire both complete a true merger / integration of services. The department now officially operates as the City of Bonner Springs Department of Fire-EMS. Our agency is fully staffed 24x7x365 to meet the needs of our community.
Please refer to our main Fire-EMS page for updated information.
EMS Department History
The department was organized in 1976 with a federal grant to purchase two ambulances and equipment. Two ambulance units, equipped for ALS, are housed at the EMS headquarters.
The department was completely volunteer until February 2001. The department has transitioned over those years and is now staffed by a combination of Career and Part-time (FTE) paramedics and EMTs, most cross certified in Fire providing 24x7x365 coverage.
