Response to medical emergencies in Johnson County is a coordinated system consisting of response by Med-Act ambulances, often augmented by local fire department personnel. Some of these firefighters are also paramedics. All agencies operate under a common set of medical protocols that are approved by the EMS Committee of the Medical Society of Johnson and Wyandotte Counties. Med-Act works closely with each agency to assure a smooth continuum of care for medical emergencies.
