EMS Agencies and Hospitals

Varna ambulance (1-T-15) is strictly a volunteer service. EMC EMS will cover that area in the event that Varna does not have personnel available.

ALL ambulance crews will respond "mutual aid" to another area if said area is out of service or on another call.

Henry Ambulance (1-T-13 & 1-T-16) responds to areas of Putnam County west of the Illinois River. Also, they will respond to the other Putnam County territories if the Putnam County units are on another call or out of service. Conversely, the same is true for Putnam County. They also will respond to Henry.
