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.
