We've been working very closely with the Jefferson County Health Department to monitor the development of COVID-19. There are currently no cases in Jefferson County.

The Health Department does not, at this time, recommend limitations on mass gatherings or school closures due to the lack of community spread of COVID-19 within the region. This is a fluid situation and circumstances may change quickly.

We will continue to monitor the local situation throughout the weekend and beyond, and will make appropriate recommendations based on the most current information available.


Crew is down at the Desoto train days festival on Main Street today. If you are not doing come down and say hi! We will be here till 9pm.

What are your plans for the Eclipse?

Valle Ambulance Paramedics and EMT's will be working extra shifts and they are ready to protect you during your darkest day.

Valle Ambulance has been working for months planning for the Eclipse and the expected influx of visitors to our area. The District has been coordinating with local law enforcement, fire departments, emergency management, hospitals, and 911. Emergency Operations plans have been developed and will be implemented if needed.

Our main concern is traffic. Response times may increase. Especially on Monday during the eclipse and just after.

Starting at 8:00 am tomorrow the District will staff two additional ambulances. On Monday, every ambulance will be staffed. Paramedics will staff duty vehicles (Quick Response Vehicles) so we can get help to you quicker and UTV's will be staffed to transport patients out of congested areas.

Additional resources from other parts of the state are ready to assist if needed.

We hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable experience.

If you have any questions feel free to message us on facebook or email me at [email protected].

US National Weather Service Saint Louis Missouri

A thunderstorm complex comprised of a bow echo produced severe wind and hail reports from central Missouri to southwest Illinois on May 6th, 2003. The worst damage was located in and around the town of Desoto, Missouri. The severe winds were estimated to be between 80 and 100 mph, causing tremendous damage during a 20 to 30 minute period of time. This same thunderstorm complex and bow echo were responsible for several other severe reports including weak tornadoes. There was 1 fatality as a result of flash flooding and dozens of injuries from severe weather.


The Valle Ambulance Board of Directors and Chief Jesse Barton recognized Dustin Lowry for his contributions and dedicated service to the Valle Ambulance District at its April 13th Board meeting.
Dustin Lowry took his oath of office as a Director for the Valle Ambulance District on April 24th, 2013. Director Lowry faithfully served his initial 3 year term and was re-elected to the Board in April 2016.
On February 22, 2017, after 3 years, 9months, and 30 days Director Lowry submitted his resignation from the Board as his employment required him to move to South Carolina.
During his tenure, Dustin was instrumental in finding ways to increase funding, implementing a retirement plan, and significant energy cost saving through a solar panel lease purchase and grant program.
We wish Dustin well in his new adventure.

Never drive through flooded waters. You don't know what the road conditions are underneath and the currents are swift enough to wash your vehicles away. ALWAYS TURN AROUND DON'T DROWN!

It is VERY important not to drive over flooded roadways! You never know how fast or deep the water is, or what it's done to the structure of the road as this video illustrates.
