Amherst Fire District has a 3-way agreement between Portage County, the city of Stevens Point and the Amherst Fire District. On July 1, 2011 the Amherst based ambulance became an "intermediate" level, running with one paramedic and one advanced EMT on board during each 12-hour shift. This will allow the crews to administer pain medication and cardiac drugs.
The Amherst ambulance has a 21 member roster, with 17 of them being at the paramedic level. The station is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with 4 full-time employees working 24 hour shifts.
