Washington County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is responsible for the regulation of ambulance and wheelchair car services in Washington County. This authority is granted in Oregon Revised Statute 682, which authorizes counties to regulate ambulance services within their boundaries. 

Under this authority Washington County has adopted its own EMS Ordinance Chapter 8.32, EMS Administrative Rules, Ambulance Service Area (ASA) Plan, and Franchise Agreement for Emergency Ambulance Services. These and other applicable county ordinances and rules may be reviewed by accessing EMS Regulations on this website
