The Cavalry Story

Cavalry Ambulance was founded in 2003 by Kent Knopf, RN who has served as a Deputy Sheriff and Flight Rescue nurse for over 21 years. Married with three children, Kent's experience and focus on integrity and efficiency, coupled with outstanding service is evident in every layer of Cavalry EMS.

As an avid outdoor enthusiast and horseman, Kent's dedication and desire to serve the community inspired the creation of a company that is rich in heritage and will most certainly aid and add value to the lives of others.

Just as the Cavalry of the past were regarded as the elite unit called to action for their swiftness and efficiency, Cavalry Ambulance upholds that esteemed reputation.
