The Chisago County Sheriff's Office is a part of the public safety system in our area. The Chisago County Sheriff's Office Emergency Communications Center coordinates dispatch services with Lakes Region EMS for 911 Emergencies. In the event of a 911 call for a medical emergency, sheriff's dispatchers will coordinate a response between deputies and police officers; fire department first responders and Lakes Region EMS personnel. For very critical patients we have access to medical helicopters from services like Life Link III and North Air Care. A helicopter often significantly reduces the time it takes for the patient to receive specialized emergency treatment. While helicopters may respond directly to the scene of an incident, the links below provide the locations of the Landing Zones to which medical helicopters will normally respond. Having these zones mapped out in advance enhances the timeliness and safety of most helicopter responses.
