Welcome to the Department of Emergency Services. The Department’s focus is to ensure that Isle of Wight County is prepared to handle all emergencies of man-made or natural origin and additionally ensure that county citizens are provided quality fire protection and emergency medical services provided by our excellent volunteer fire and rescue agencies. Other responsibilities include developing emergency preparedness plans, assisting various volunteer citizen committees and participating in regional emergency preparedness organizations. The Department is led by Chief Rusty Chase.
If you are seeking a copy of your Pre-Hospital Patient Care Report (PPCR), you may visit our offices at the Isle of Wight County Courthouse Complex, located directly across from the Isle of Wight Academy. The Department is in the building furthest to the left, next to the historic Boykins Tavern Museum. Our Administrative Assistant will assist you in your request. Please ensure that you have a valid form of identification (such as your driver’s license) with you to retrieve your report. If you have any questions about your ambulance transport bill, PPCR, the EMS Subscription Service, or general questions regarding emergency services in the county feel free to contact us or visit our department. Office Hours are M-F, 8:30AM – 5:00PM. Please leave a message if we are unable to answer your phone call. Thank you for visiting our site.
