Starting Wednesday, Sept. 6, Williamson County EMS is adding additional resources to its EMS station at 1781 E. Old Settlers Blvd., next to the county’s J.B. and Hallie Jester Annex. Williamson County EMS is adding a second 24-hour ambulance at the station in order to better serve the residents in that growing area, adding six medics to that station.
Additionally, WilCo EMS is expanding existing service by partnering with the Round Rock Fire Department to put an ambulance at Round Rock’s Fire Station 6, 2919 Joe Dimaggio Blvd., Round Rock, by Dell Diamond. This will provide more hours of coverage and enhanced response to the north and eastern parts of Round Rock.
The changes and additions are part of the county’s strategic plan to maintain excellent EMS coverage in partnership with the city of Round Rock. Call volume in the Round Rock area has increased by almost 30% over the past five years.
Williamson County EMS has 23 response resources throughout the county and 151 field providers.
