(Riley County, KS – October 6, 2023) Riley County is proud to announce the new Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Station in Leonardville is almost complete and will be ready to tour on Saturday, October 14. The community is invited to join us for a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house starting at 10:00 a.m. Light refreshments will be served after the ceremony.

The new EMS station at 506 E. Barton Road will house a full-time ambulance and crew, ready to respond to medical emergencies in the northern part of the county 24/7/365. The facility is a new construction, with an ambulance bay, two bedrooms, an office, full bathroom, and kitchen.

"As a Public Service leader, we are always excited when Riley County EMS can enhance our service to the community. This station will do just that," said Riley County EMS Director David Adams.

The facility was constructed by Schultz Construction, inc. of Manhattan, Kansas and designed by Anderson Knight Architects, also of Manhattan. The intention was to provide all the necessary tools and features while also blending the exterior of the structure seamlessly into the neighborhood. 

The total budget for the new station including construction costs, materials, fixtures, and a new ambulance is $1.49 million. Funds from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPS) paid for the project.

Speakers at the event will include the Board of County Commissioners Kathryn Focke, John Ford, and Greg McKinley, as well as EMS Director David Adams. 

Riley County EMS is an Advanced Life Support service that answers approximately 5,500 calls for service in Riley County each year. It is the mission of Riley County Emergency Medical Service to support the people of Riley County, Kansas by pursuing excellence in pre-hospital healthcare, injury and illness prevention, and community outreach.
