A Letter from the Director


Welcome to the Lisbon-Mt. Vernon Ambulance Service (LMVAS)! I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our service and the work we do within the community.

Here at LMVAS, we believe a community’s Emergency Medical Services is an extension of local public health and therefore our mission is to provide professional and community-oriented emergency medical services to the communities of Lisbon and Mt. Vernon, as well as the surrounding areas. In support of our mission, our members are active within the community responding to 911 calls, working standbys at community events, or giving tours of the ambulance to future EMTs. Our service also utilizes patient care data to continuously improve the quality of our service and to prioritize community education. LMVAS partners with local public health entities ensure our communities are properly educated in prevention and first response of medical emergencies. One such initiative is community CPR training offered in conjunction with the Mount Vernon-Lisbon Rotary. This partnership includes teaching an annual community CPR class as well as providing CPR instruction and certification to local businesses and organizations.

LMVAS strives to be a leader in EMS excellence and to maintain public trust through delivery of professional, compassionate care to those we serve. This vision is accomplished as members receive additional in-depth training such as Prehospital Trauma Life Support and Advanced Cardiac Life Support, and as we host area professionals to educate our members in their expert subject area.

Our service works closely with local and regional partners to ensure excellence, collaboration, and communication when time matters most. LMVAS local partners include: Mount Vernon Police Department, Mount Vernon Fire Department, Lisbon Police Department, Lisbon Fire Department, and the Linn County Sheriff’s Office. Our regional partners include: LifeGuard Air Ambulance, Mechanicsville Ambulance, Stanwood Ambulance, Clarence Ambulance, Area Ambulance, Martelle Fire Department, Ely Fire Department, the West Bertram Fire Department, and the Johnson County EMS Association.

LMVAS strives to achieve and maintain excellence in EMS. Our members are dedicated to our mission and work hard every day to further our vision. I encourage you to reach out with any questions. If you would like to become a part of our dedicated team, visit the “Volunteer” page for more information.


At your service,

Jacob Lindauer, BS, NRP, FP-C
