Our History

The Owensville community formed an Area Ambulance District in 1974. The OAAD covers approximately 125 square miles of the southern half of Gasconade County. The district takes great pride in its service and is committed to providing the best personnel with the best training and equipment possible.

Currently the OAAD has six elected board directors, eight full-time paramedics, six part-time paramedics, four full-time EMT's, four part-time EMT's, and three ambulances. The Owensville Area Ambulance District responds to an increasing amount of calls over their 45 years of service. You may contact them by phone, fax, or location.
