Ringdahl Ambulance Service in Pelican Rapids, Minnesota provides emergency advanced life support (ALS) services to all of western Ottertail County with shared staff between our Fergus Falls and Pelican Rapids services. We staff three ALS crews in Fergus Falls and have an additional one or two ALS crews at our Pelican Rapids station. Our primary crew is in-house at all of our locations 24 hours per day and ready for immediate response to 911 calls and requests from surrounding hospitals and ambulance services for critical care and ALS intercepts. We respond to approximately 2,500 call per year in Ottertail County.
Our crews are nationally registered and state certified Paramedic, Intermediates, or Basic level EMTs. We are licensed through the State of Minnesota and our Paramedics are also certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and many are trained as critical care technicians.
