Join Our Team

Beaver Island EMS provides a unique working environment. Situated 32 miles off the coast of Charlevoix, with no bridge, our patients are evacuated by plane. We maintain a licensed air ambulance, which we utilize throughout the year to evacuate patients to the nearest or most appropriate hospital. Our coverage area includes the town of St. James, which is inhabited by approximately 500 year round residents, and thousands of visitors throughout the summer months, as well as thousands of acres of wilderness on our island and the surrounding islands.

Our service uses progressive protocols, and advanced equipment to ensure the best patient care is provided in our unique and remote setting. We are a licensed ALS agency with one ALS truck, and one BLS truck. We run an E-Car system, with the Paramedic responding in an licensed and fully equipped rapid response vehicle, while the EMT and MFR respond with the ambulance.
