North Central EMS is a non-profit organization and is nationally known as one of the most diverse transportation services in North Central Ohio. They provide 911 emergency medical attention, and both emergency and non-emergency ambulance transportation, mobile intensive care transports, specialized care transports and wheelchair van operations. They have responded to the medical emergency needs of communities throughout North Central Ohio since 1986 with Milan and Milan Township being their second area to contract for services. Their operation began with two stations, three ambulances and twelve full-time paramedics/emergency medical technicians.

     In 2009, as they celebrate 22 years of dedicated service, they respond to more than 20,000 calls a year. Over 140 employees respond to 911 emergencies and non-emergency transport requests from ten geographically placed stations: Greenwich, Norwalk, Milan, Berlin Heights, Vermilion, Sandusky, Bellevue, Fremont, Port Clinton, and Woodville.
