Description of Primary Response Area:

Service area includes the northeast part of Nelson County, including the cities of Michigan, Petersburg, Dahlen, & Whitman.  Also part of rural Fordville & Lankin in southwest part of Walsh County. 




The Michigan Area Ambulance Service is an all-volunteer service providing service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  It is licensed with the State of ND as a Basic Life Support service.


Michigan Area Ambulance Service organized in 1972.  With 50 percent matching federal funds and donations, the first ambulance was purchased January 1974.  Dr. N. Boyd Hagen taught Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) classes and trained 25 volunteers.  In July 1977 we purchased a pager system with a base station located at the Memorial Rest Home.



we are dispatched by the Lake Region 911 Center in Devils Lake and calls come across pagers carried by all active members.  Call schedules (rosters) are set up with 3 person crews, with each member on call either days or nights once every third week. We receive approximately 50-85 calls per year.


We are very fortunate to have a supportive community who generously gives donations and memorials. We are always in need of more volunteers.  Anyone wishing to give some of their time should contact any of our current members.  We are proud to serve as the Michigan Area Ambulance Service!
