The ESS is a non-traditional fire service organization created in 1991, to fill a very important, but overlooked emergency service. Our role is to support the fire departments of Johnson County. With services like Incident Rehab. When we provide this, service it consists of fluids to prevent dehydration, food for energy and medical evaluations if needed! In 2002 we started providing another service as well, refilling breathing apparatus on scene with our new 4 bottle cascade system.
Our patch is a designed thought out by Coordinator Randal Goodwin and the art work was done by Deputy Coordinator Grace Goodwin. The Maltese cross represents the fire service and the hands around it represent the support we give to our county's Bravest. The hands are modeled after the artist Grace Goodwin. She could not find a picture of hands that she liked, so she used her hands as the model.
If you would like to trade patches just send a patch and a self addresses envelope and we will send one back.
