Licensing & Relicensure

The ambulance and wheelchair car licensing process begins by submitting a completed application, accompanied by all requested supporting documentation, to Washington County Emergency Medical Services (WCEMS) for approval. 

Upon approval, the primary applicant is invoiced for current annual licensing fees, in accordance with the Fiscal Year 2021-2022 Ambulance and Wheelchair Car Licensing Fee Structure. Licenses are issued upon receipt of payment, and are to be displayed prominently on the rear window of each service vehicle. Decals are specific to a particular vehicle and are not transferable. 

Annual licensing occurs prior to the beginning of each fiscal year, effective July 1 through June 30. Midyear licensing is possible, in which case licensing fees will be pro-rated. Incomplete or late applications may jeopardize timely license issuance.

For applications contact the Washington County EMS Office at 503-846-8699.
