About us

A brief history:

Not long after standards for EMS were developed in the United States, the Hill City Ambulance Service was born. It all began in the 1970’s with three EMTs – three friends who wanted to serve their community. They used their own money to purchase an ambulance and began a private business.

With a growing community and business, Hill City Ambulance began to look to the future, and in 1984, the Hill City Ambulance District was organized as a taxing district and seated its first board of directors.

Today, the Hill City Ambulance Service is comprised of 13 paid staff and is overseen by a 5 person Board of Directors and a medical director, Dr. Lisa Brown.  The District owns two ambulances and is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Sharing space with the Hill City Volunteer Fire Department, EMTs and Firefighters work closely together and also value an excellent relationship with the Pennington County Sheriff’s Department and the Rapid City Fire Department in order to serve the community of Hill City and the surrounding area.
