Emergency Medical Services
Medical Response with Licensed Personnel
It is a requirement as a responder for our Fire District that all firefighters must be medically trained to a minimum of basic First Aid and CPR. We also have many Emergency Medical Responders (EMR's), Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT's) AEMT's and EMT-I's & Paramedics. The more advanced disciplines allow for even greater care for the members of our community.
The ability to remove someone from a critical situation.
Our Firefighters are trained to provide a variety of rescue skills. Some of those include motor vehicle accident extrication, structure fire rescue, reach and treat water rescue and we assist on low angle, high angle and rope rescue calls.
