We are a caring service founded in Montana.

Proud to be locally owned
Joel Kelm (CEO)


Joel is the Chief Executive Officer of Beartooth EMS. Joel has worked and volunteered in the Fire & EMS Industry since 2003. Joel is a Licensed Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT) and AEMT instructor. He started his first company in 2009 solely teaching CPR & First Aid. Living in Montana Joel noticed a lack of locally-owned emergency services that understood and tailored their services to meet Montana's diverse needs. It was from this realization that Beartooth EMS & Rescue was born, with the heart to bring caring, local and personal services to Montana state. Joel strives to meet the needs of an ever-changing Montana and fill the gaps in the Healthcare Industry.
