People are the backbone of every organization and community. TAD has a great team of Certified Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians who are dedicated to bringing you the highest quality Emergency Medical Services. We are also your neighbors. We are proud members of our community, and proud to be a part of what makes our community great.
In accordance with Colorado state law governing Special Districts, Trinidad Ambulance District is administrated by a five member Board of Directors who are elected by the citizens we serve to terms of four years. Our current board members are shown below. We appreciate their service to our community and to Trinidad Ambulance District.
Trinidad Ambulance District (TAD) was established as a Special District under Colorado Law in 1989 to serve the emergency medical service needs of the citizens of Las Animas County. TAD is supported in large part by payments for our services made by the patients we serve or their insurance provider. The district is also supported in part by taxes in the form of a levy on Las Animas County property owners.
The Creation of Trinidad Ambulance District was approved by by majority of the voters of the city of Trinidad in November of 1988. The voters also approved the levy that would partially support TAD operations. Initially the tax base of the district consisted of the city limits of Trinidad, Co.
In 2006 the voters of Las Animas County approved a general election ballot question that expanded the district's tax base to include all of Las Animas County and established a new lower levy than was approved in 1989.
As a Special District under Colorado state law rules TAD is administered by a five member Board of Directors, elected to serve four year terms from within the boundaries of the district. The laws governing special districts also require that TAD operate under a Service Plan approved by the Board of County Commissioners for Las Animas County as well as the County Court.
In 2011 a new headquarters building and second ambulance station was constructed for Trinidad Ambulance district a 939 Robinson Ave. in Trinidad. Construction was completed in early 2012.
