Welcome to the Central Iowa EMS Directors website!  The Central Iowa EMS Directors Association is composed of EMS Directors and agency representatives from central Iowa.  The Association meets every other month to share ideas, unite as a single voice, and make decisions on issues affecting our agencies and communities.  There are 9 counties included in the association, which include: Boone, Dallas, Jasper, Madison, Marion, Marshall, Polk, Story, and Warren.

We encourage each EMS agency in the nine county area to have their service director or a representative attend the association meetings.  The meetings are held on fourth Monday of odd numbered months.  The group meets at a different location each month.  The upcoming meetings are posted on the events tab on the right of this screen or click  here to view the 2017 CIEMSD meeting schedule.

Please review our brochure for benefits of active membership. If you would like more information about becoming involved with the CIEMSD Association, please contact us at membership@ciemsd.org, or go to the Membership page to complete an application.


5th Street Closure at Mercy

Mercy will have a large crane in place moving some cooling equipment onto the roof at the main campus. 5th street will be closed to traffic from The West entrance of the hospital on 5th street to just South of the departure area of the ED ambulance garage ramp. The flow of ambulance traffic in and out of the ED garage will not be affected. The West entrance will also remain open but traffic will be more congested in the area. If everything stays on schedule the closure of 5th street will be from 2/6-2/10 pending any weather delays.
