A rural area encompassing almost 200 square miles, in 2000 Owsley County had a population of only 4,858 people. Booneville, the county seat, had a population of 111 people. Until 1970, Owsley County did not have a formal ambulance service; instead, the local undertaker supplied transportation to hospitals for a fee. In 1970, a new health care program in Perry County, Kentucky began providing ambulance service to neighboring counties, including Owsley. In 1972, the Booneville-Owsley County Volunteer Fire Department was formed; their first truck was a 1948 Chevrolet Chassis. Three years after its beginnings, ambulance services in Owsley County were bankrupt and non-functioning. However, in 1974, a local resident, Dalphus Allen, founded the first permanent ambulance service in that county: Allen's Ambulance Service. On August 28, 1987, University of Kentucky Medical Center began providing the first helicopter ambulance services to rural Kentucky, including Owsley County. Thirty-one years later, both Allen's Ambulance Service and the Booneville-Owsley County Volunteer Fire Department continue to serve Owsley County, as does the University of Kentucky Air Medical Service.This collection documents the ways in which ambulance and fire department services are provided to rural areas in Kentucky. A History of Emergency Services in Owsley County was originally created by University of Kentucky undergraduate and Owsley County native, Dustin Cooper. Most of the collection consists of digital prints representing Owsley County and University of Kentucky emergency service providers and their activities between the early 1970's and the late twentieth century. Included are digital photographic prints of fire engines, ambulances, medical helicopters, and fire stations that provide service to Owsley County, as well as volunteer fire fighters, emergency medical personnel, and other related individuals. Also included in the collection are a digital film, a PowerPoint presentation on compact disc, and a manuscript. Each of these items expresses the creator's understanding of emergency services in Owsley County, and provides connection and narrative to the prints. The PowerPoint file was used for a class project and presentation which included many of the digital prints. According to Dustin Cooper, the digital film is a "DVD of documentary on the history of emergency services, such as the fire department and ambulance service in Owsley County, Kentucky." The manuscript further elucidates the development of emergency services in Owsley County.Original order has been preserved; digital prints were arranged by the creator as supplements that correlate with the manuscript and the video presentation.Container ListDigital Prints11Richard Searcy; Part Owner/Operator Searcy and Strong Funeral Home; Provided ambulance coverage to Owsley County from 1947-197012Dalphus Allen; Supervisor for the Owsley and Lake County branch of Buckhorn Lake Ambulance Service from 1970-1973; with grandson.
