Rural/Metro Careers & Info

Rural/Metro Overview

Rural/Metro provides private ambulance and fire protection services to counties, municipalities and healthcare systems. The company’s ambulance services include 911 emergency, interfacility and special event service. Fire services include community, industrial and wildlife fire protection.

The company’s beginnings are a classic story of public spirit and entrepreneurism. In 1948, Lou Witzeman watched his neighbor’s house burn because there was no fire department in their small town. Determined to do something, Lou started a grassroots community effort by going door to door and appealing to neighbors for contributions. A plan was started by which local citizens would pay an annual fee and use it to pay a fire department, and this eventually grew into Rural/Metro. Today the company operates in some 700 communities and employs more than 10,000 people.
