As a political subdivision of the State of North Dakota and as an agency supported by public funds, the Divide County Ambulance District is subject to the North Dakota Open Records laws.

Every person has a right to inspect any open public record, regardless of reason or residence – the right to access public records belongs to all persons equally. Advance notice is not required, nor is a specific method of request.
