South Carolina EMS Regions


To best meet the needs of South Carolina's 46 counties, four regional EMS councils were established in the mid 1970's based upon population and geographic patterns. These regional offices serve as liaisons to individual services and work on a contractual basis with DHEC's EMS Division to provide training needs assessments and programs, technical assistance, consulting and assistance in administering grant-in-aid distribution. Each regional EMS office is guided by its own board of directors.
