MED-ACT maintains several special operations teams that specialize in different types of response. After their first years of training, many providers choose to join a special operations team in addition to their regular field assignment, train in different concepts and build upon their team building skills.
Training classes offered by MED-ACT help residents to assist when an emergency strikes.
MED-ACT uses a collaborative leadership structure to incorporate field input on a variety of management issues. Field personnel are encouraged to participate in any of these venues. Field input is an essential part of MED-ACT’s approach, helping to assure that our actions are coordinated and grounded.
MED-ACT units are located throughout Johnson County to provide advanced level emergency care with optimum response times. While each EMS unit has a defined response district, the districts are only representative of what is generally the "first due" area for a given station while the system is at rest.
