Emergency Management & Public Safety

The Office of Emergency Management & Public Safety is responsible for emergency responses, including 911 service, county ambulance service, and emergency planning. Sebastian County has an aggressive Training Program for the First Responders in the Rural Fire Departments. We currently have 78 First Responders in the Fire Departments; 35 are EMTs and 6 are paramedics. Funding for the department is provided by an $18 fee added to personal property tax, approved by voters in 1986.
