Northland Regional Ambulance District
About NRAD
Northland Regional Ambulance District is a political subdivision, established in 1994 by the registered voters within the district's boundaries. The district is governed by an elected board of directors, who serve in the six sub-districts within NRAD's boundaries.  An Executive Director, hired by the board, oversees the day-to-day operations of the district.

The district encompasses more than 340 square miles in Platte and Clay counties, north of the Kansas City metropolitan area. The district includes the Camden Point, Dearborn, Smithville and Central Platte fire protection districts, as well as a portion of the Edgerton-Trimble Fire Protection District. We also provide mutual aid responses to the communities surrounding our district.

Our emergency medical technicians and paramedics provide Advanced Life Support emergency medical care to the ill and injured. The medical crew members are highly-trained in the methods and mechanics of providing the highest level of emergency medical care possible to each patient. Our medical personnel are licensed and registered through state and national EMS organizations, and maintain their credentials through constant training and education. NRAD's EMTs and Paramedics are affiliated with the International Association of Firefighters, Local 42. 

NRAD's 9-1-1 Emergency Dispatching is handled by the Platte County Sheriff's Department. Using computer-aided 9-1-1 technology, the dispatchers are equipped to identify the location of the emergency call and dispatch the closest and most appropriate units to the scene. The dispatchers play a critical role in allowing us to meet and exceed our goals of rapid response, early treatment and efficient assistance.

In 2004, just 10 years after the formation of our district, NRAD was named Emergency Medical Service of the Year by the Missouri Emergency Medical Services Association (MEMSA). This annual award recognizes EMS services for providing outstanding levels of patient care, and for meeting or exceeding the high standards of emergency medical care set by the Association. Our administration and employees continue to hold themselves to those high standards, and are committed to continually improving NRAD's level of service with advanced training and state-of-the-art equipment.
