County EMS Data: West Virginia
[BETA CONTENT AND TOOLS]
West Virginia does not have a state-level permanent funding source for emergency medical services (EMS). The financial burden, but not obligation, is largely left to counties. Many counties provide financial assistance to EMS organizations, but the amount varies widely based on their population. In about 20 counties, EMS organizations receive little to no local funding.
