Lawrenceburg Emergency Rescue Unit made its first EMS call in 1952.  LERU now averages 2,300 calls per year and responds to all types of emergencies.  LERU has also responded to back up calls in Hamilton and Ohio Counties. LERU’s first ambulance was donated by Thomas Fitch and was in service for many years. In 2014 LERU started the first 24-hr Paramedic level service in Dearborn County and in 2019 started the first full time Paramedic intercept vehicle in the County.  LERU averages over 200 calls for a Paramedic intercept with other EMS departments.  LERU is staffed by 1 Director, 8 full-time paramedics, and about a dozen part-time EMT’s and paramedics.  Along with the squad’s Medical Director and the adoption of the Southwest Ohio Prehospital Care Protocols,  LERU is focused on providing the latest evidenced based care to the citizens of Lawrenceburg and to the surrounding communities.

Mayor Kelly Mollaun shares, “Public Safety is a priority for any community. Our first responders are well trained and qualified professionals. Keeping our community safe and serviced will continue to be our focus. I want to thank our men and women who work in our public safety sector in Lawrenceburg.”
