Clear Lake Emergency Medical Corps (CLEMC) was founded in 1972 by volunteers within the Seabrook Fire Department. CLEMC started out small, providing only two 911 response ambulances, but now has a total of five ambulances and on supervisor vehicle providing 911 service to the local communities, as well as inter-facility transfer service among the local hospitals.
Aside from a general 911 city ambulance service, CLEMC provides many other specialized services such as:
medical care and stand-by at Johnson Space Center and Ellington Joint Reserve Base Operations, Bike Emergency Response Team, Kidz Care Childhood Immunization Program, Community Education (CPR, First Aid, Safe Sitter course), and the Wag/n O2 Fur Life Program.
CLEMC has trucks available 24/7 for any 911 emergency, along with designated medical transfer trucks specializing in non-emergency/emergency transfers. Among the two trucks available for medical transfers, CLEMC recently added a "peak truck" on Friday to be more accommodating to the local area medical facilities and patients.
