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.
We are excited to have Mike on our staff serving as Medical Oversight and Direction. He has past experience as a Firefighter/Paramedic and has a wealth of knowledge and experience in his field. Mike is a vital part of the Emergency Community in Montana and we are proud to have him as an asset to our crew members and patients.
