We start every day with our goals to provide outstanding service to our clients, taking them to hospitals among other necessary appointments in a timely manner. This was true when First Advanced first opened its doors in 2004, and is just as true today.

1st Advanced Transportation

Our company was founded as First Advanced Transportation in 2004 and started out with 2 wheel chair vans with the purpose of helping those in our communities, who needed transportation to and from doctor's and dialysis appointments.

Through hard work and dedication we were able to obtain our BLS and ALS licenses and expand the company to 9 ambulances and 4 wheel chair vans offering 24/7 service by the end of 2008.


In 2010, seeing how our company grew and to honor our additional emergency transportation services, we decided to change our name to 1st Advanced EMS.

In 2011 we expanded our service areas from Columbus to Newark, OH and again in the beginning of 2014 to Marion, OH.

We strive to provide quality emergency and non-emergency care, to meet the evolving needs of our surrounding communities.
