Acadian Ambulance Service
From Very Humble Beginnings
We began our operation in 1971 — a time of crisis in Lafayette, Louisiana — as the departure of funeral homes from the ambulance transportation field brought on a nationwide emergency due to new federal regulations.
In the midst of that crisis, Acadian Ambulance was established and trained the first emergency medical technicians (EMTs) in the state of Louisiana. Our two ambulances and eight employees served the 279 square miles of Lafayette Parish.
