Benton County has reached an agreement with Mercy Emergency Medical Services for ambulance service in most of the eastern part of the county.

Rural ambulance service

Benton County contracts with six cities — Bella Vista, Bentonville, Gravette, Pea Ridge, Rogers and Siloam Springs — along with the Northeast Benton County Fire Department and Mercy Health System to provide rural ambulance service. The ambulance providers were paid about $1.8 million in 2016.
