Puckett EMS specializes in 9-1-1 EMS system design to deploy vehicles and staffing resources efficiently to provide exceptional response and expert care. We have been entrusted to protect the health of our 9-1-1 communities, and we believe that goes beyond effective emergency response. Puckett EMS becomes a part of the communities that we serve participating in community events, festivals, organizations, nonprofits and community initiatives.
In total, Puckett EMS provides 9-1-1 response to more than 366,000 people in 874 square miles through partnerships with Southwest Cobb, Dade and Walker counties in Georgia and Marion and Sequatchie counties in Southwest Tennessee.
Puckett EMS is proud to be a part of the Federal Disaster Response Team (DRT). This team is responsible for responding to federally-declared disasters and assisting local, state and federal agencies when overburdened by any event. Puckett EMS maintains equipment and resources prepositioned in our response areas for quick deployment in times of disaster.
Puckett EMS provides both Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS) services. Serving primarily Cobb, Douglas, Fulton, Paulding, Dade, Marion, and Hamilton Counties, we pride ourselves on being professional, courteous and on-time with each and every patient we transport. It’s our mission to treat each patient and their family as if they were a part of our own family.

We understand with the changing dynamics in healthcare our customers are looking for alternatives to meet transportation needs. Puckett MedVan was started with this in mind. Puckett MedVan provides ambulatory, wheelchair and stretcher transportation for patients who are medically stable and do not require medical personnel during transport in our Southwest Tennessee/Northwest Georgia area market.
Puckett MedVan provides a cost-effective solution for nonemergency transports for doctor’s appointments, dialysis treatments, and therapy appointments. Appointments can be arranged with one call to our Communications Center. The emergency dispatcher will dispatch the most appropriate, cost effective means of transportation to you.

Special Event Medicine
The Puckett EMS Special Event Medicine Team provides rapid Emergency Medical care during events in which the traffic, crowd congestion or obscure locations could make normal modes of emergency care difficult. The Special Event Medicine Team has grown in size and capability to handle small-scale events that may only require a bike team, to large-scale events utilizing our specially equipped motorized event cart, first aid tents, onsite physician support, Mobile Command Center, aerial surveillance and monitoring and EMT/Paramedic walking teams.
Puckett EMS will ensure your attendees are safe and protected from developing a solid, plan in advance and providing professional staffing and advanced, specialized event response equipment. Some examples of events are marathons, runs and walks; construction sites; motor sports; sporting events; and media and movie production sets.
