Community Relations

While 911 calls are our primary responsibility, Catawba County EMS is committed to community involvement. We do that through presentations, ambulance displays, classes, programs, and event coverage.

We are happy to visit schools, churches, civic groups and any other gatherings of people who would like to learn more about EMS or health and safety. Some of our classroom presentations include the following topics:

  • Basic First Aid
  • Career Presentations
  • What Does EMS Do?
  • Stop The Bleed
