Questa Fire and EMS provides 24/7 ALS/ ILS ambulance service to the Village of Questa and the Northern Portion of Taos County. The Village of Questa consists of 14 square miles, and the Northern portion of Taos County consists of the remaining 700 square miles.
The population that we serve is approximately 4,500 people however, that varies during the various seasons. During the summer, fall and winter moths we expect large tourist populations that pass through or come for various activities such as summer fun, hunting, and winter activities such as snowmobiling and skiing. The other coverage areas include the small communities of San Cristobal, La Lama, Cerro, El Rito, Latir, Sunshine Valley, Costilla, Amalia, Ventero, and Questa. Also included in this area is the former Chevron Mine, Valle, Vidal wilderness area, Latir wilderness area, Rios Del Norte National Monument, Carson National forest, and Bureau of Land Management lands. Without the services provided by Questa Ambulance the 4,500 constituents would be waiting anywhere from 45 minutes to upwards of an hour for the emergency service from Taos to aid them in their time of crisis.
On staff we currently have 3 EMT-Paramedics, 10 EMT- Intermediates, 12 EMT-Basics, 1 EMT- First Responder and 7 EVO’s. Currently we are staffed for 10 hours during the day from 8am and 6pm. After 6pm we rely on volunteer responders. During the weekends from Friday at 8am to Monday 8am we have 24-hour coverage. In service we currently have 2 ambulances our oldy but goody (2396) a 1997 F-350 and a 2012 F-450 (2387) which was graciously donated by Taos County. February 3, 2020 we will be welcoming our 3rd Ambulance to add to our fleet it will be a 2019 (F-450). Along with EMS services we also provide HAZMAT, Rescue, Wildland and Structural fire suppression.
