The mission of Hidalgo EMS is to serve the public as a team of dedicated Professionals by providing quality emergency care, public education, and community service


Hidalgo County’s EMS system incorporates one full-time department located in Lordsburg and four other volunteer departments situated in the county’s most rural areas. With this system, virtually the entire county and parts of southern Grant County are assured 24/7 coverage. Hidalgo County’s centralized dispatch system allows these departments to work together to provide emergency care hundreds of times each year.

In addition to medical and traumatic emergencies, Hidalgo County EMS currently provides ambulance coverage for special events within Lordsburg and Hidalgo County. On site coverage is provided for football games, Relay for Life, county fairs and rodeos, and a host of other events.
