EASI’s history goes all the way back to 1927, when Don Lusby started an ambulance service in Pine Bluff. Formerly known as Lusby’s, our company has been operating full-time since 1972 and officially became Emergency Ambulance Service, Inc. (EASI) in 2001.
EASI has long been a leader in pre-hospital care:
- In 1986, we were the first ambulance service in Arkansas to be licensed at the Advanced Life Support level.
- In 1990, we became the first ambulance service in Southeast Arkansas to be licensed at the Paramedic level.
- In 1992, we became the first licensed Advanced Rescue Unit in Arkansas.
- In 2000, we became the first ambulance service in Arkansas to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services (CAAS).
In 2015, EASI purchased and renovated 3 vacant properties in downtown Pine Bluff, creating our new headquarters. All financing, construction, and new equipment was procured in Pine Bluff or Jefferson County.
