June 13, 2023

Nashville, Tenn. (June 13, 2023) – First Call Ambulance, a proud member of the Priority Ambulance family of companies, has been awarded the exclusive contract to provide 9-1-1 and nonemergency ambulance services to the citizens of Humphreys County.

Humphreys County Commissioners voted unanimously this week to award the contract to First Call, following a competitive bidding process that included the incumbent provider. The new contract begins July 1, 2023, with a term of three years.

“We are very proud of our team and especially pleased to begin serving the citizens of Humphreys County later this summer,” said First Call President Scott Yates. “Our presence in middle Tennessee and in neighboring counties is sizeable. Our Humphreys County staff will have significant support regionally from the First Call team, as well as resources available statewide with our sister companies Baptist Ambulance in west Tennessee, A&E EMS in south central Tennessee, Priority Ambulance in east Tennessee and Puckett EMS in southeastern Tennessee.”

Humphreys County lies just west of Dickson County in the western area of middle Tennessee and is home to nearly 19,000 citizens. The county is contiguous to existing First Call Ambulance service areas, making Humphreys County a compelling area for the company’s geographic expansion.

First Call Ambulance will staff two advanced life support (ALS) and one basic life support (BLS) ambulance 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and a paramedic supervisor ALS quick-response vehicle during the weekdays.
