Programs: The mission of regional emergency medical services authority (remsa) is to provide an effective ground ambulance service which functions as a part of a coordinated emergency medical service system for the health and safety of the community and its citizens. The organization is the only emergency medical transport company in the city of st. Joseph and also serves the surrounding communities in buchanan county. The county has a population of approximately 90,000 people. The board of directors of the organization adopted an amendment, effective july 1, 2014, that changes the articles of incorporation to make buchanan county, missouri the sole member. By adopting the amendment, the board transferred ownership and operation of the entity to buchanan county. By doing so, the provision of ambulance services can be more easily aligned with other governmental programs provided by the county and the city of st. Joseph, in order to better serve the community.
