A History of Service

AAS started in 1972 with 10 ambulances and 50 employees, running more than 5,000 calls for service a year out of a small base station on Central Avenue. Today, AAS responds to over 100,000 calls for service a year with a fleet of over 60 ambulances and a staff of more than 300 paramedics, EMTs, and EMDs. At any given time, AAS has between 20 and 50 ambulances deployed to serve the citizens of Bernalillo County.

All AAS employees are committed to providing continuous improvement in patient care and outcomes through emergency medical services.
