  • Lavaca County EMS (LCEMS) is a county funded licensed EMS provider established July 1, 1973. Formally Lavaca County Rescue Service (LCRS), we have provided coverage to our rural area with partial pay personnel since its foundation. LCEMS is now a fully paid department with both full and part time personnel that has top priority in providing emergency prehospital care for the citizens of Hallettsville, Moulton and Shiner as well as the unincorporated portions of our county. The total population of our service area is 20,154 according to the US Census Bureau in 2019 which certainly makes us a rural service. We are responsible for providing 911 coverage for the majority of our 975 square mile county, as well as having mutual aid agreements with our neighboring departments. We also provide emergency and non-emergency interfacility transports for the county’s two critical access hospitals. These transports are being made to areas such as: Victoria (50 miles), Austin (90 miles), Houston (110 miles), and San Antonio (110 miles). We also provide transports for our four (4) area nursing homes and do stand by at sporting events such as high school football games and rodeos. 

    LCEMS prides itself on our quick response, professional service and cutting-edge clinical care guidelines which allow us to aggressively treat patients that could be located in some of the most remote portions of our county. LCEMS staffs 3 ambulances 24/7/365 with a paid staff of 21 EMT’s and Paramedics as well as a Shift Captain. We respond to approximately 2,000 calls for service a year.
