MT LARCOM EMERGENCY SERVICES
For a small community Mt. Larcom is well served by emergency services. There is a Police Station, Ambulance Station, Rural Fire Brigade and State Emergency Service.
The presence of these services often surprises visitors particularly the presence of a permanently staffed Ambulance service
There is a police station located in Mt Larcom with further stations located at Marmor to the north and Calliope to the south.
Operations commenced from the new Mt Larcom Ambulance Station on 20th December 2001. This building replaced the original building which was built in 1924 and had served the community well since that time. The original station was renovated and remained as the residence for the Officer in Charge.
The fleet consists of a F350 and a Mercedes Sprinter
The work patterns have changed over the years with the number of road trauma call dropping and a corresponding increase in the number of medical calls.
The Ambulance is the only medical facility in the area and as such continues to operate a casualty room.

STATE EMERGENCY SERVICE
The Mt. Larcom SES group was reformed in February 2000 and now has a membership of 20 active members
The group meets and trains at the headquarters in Popenia Rd each Monday night excluding public and school holidays.
The most regular activation is to provide traffic control at the scene of road accidents and to assist with the removal of debris following heavy vehicle accidents.
The longest activation in recent months was a 13 hour traffic control activation following the roll over of a fuel tanker which blocked the highway and it was necessary to divert the traffic through the town.
