Sunriver Fire and Rescues Ambulance Service Area (ASA) is not just the boundaries of Sunriver. Our ASA is assigned by Deschutes County and we are responsible for 911 EMS calls for almost 360 square miles. Our ASA includes a 10 mile section of highway 97 in the Lava Butte Pass corridor and goes west to the high lakes along scenic Century Drive. This includes Crane Prairie reservoir, Elk Lake, the Lava Lakes, Edison Snow Park, and many miles in between.
Both our ambulances are fully equipped with the latest Advanced Life Support services to ensure the highest level of customer service for our community. When it comes to providing EMS to our citizens, Sunriver Fire & Rescue is a leader in the field. Our firefighter medics are highly trained, and capable of handling any emergency they may encounter. All of Sunriver Fire and Rescue's full-time career firefighters are licensed EMT-Paramedics.
Our EMS crews provide patient care under the direct supervision by the way of offline medical protocols and training through our Medical Director, Dr. Ryan Petersen, MD. Dr. Petersen is a board certified physician in Emergency Medicine in the St. Charles Health System.
