Wolfforth EMS

Wolfforth Volunteer EMS was established in 1977, and is a part of the Lubbock County EMS system.  Wolfforth EMS established joint service with Wolfforth Volunteer Fire Department and serves Wolfforth and surrounding areas of southwest Lubbock County.  Wolfforth EMS became a paid, fully staffed department in October, 2006, substantially improving emergency medical response in the service area.  The EMS section continues to operate with volunteers to support and assist the paid staff.
