Emergency Medical Services

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is defined as a network of services coordinated to provide aid and medical assistance from
primary response to definitive care, involving personnel trained in the rescue, stabilization, transportation, and advanced treatment of traumatic or medical emergencies. Linked by a communication system that operates on both a local and a regional level, EMS is a tiered system of care, which is usually initiated by citizen action in the form of a telephone call to an emergency number.

Subsequent stages include the emergency medical dispatch, first medical responder, ambulance personnel, medium and heavy rescue equipment, and paramedic units, if necessary.

All personnel are required to be State Firefighter II and EMT-Basic Certified.  Currently, we have 19 paramedics and 18 EMT's who respond to nearly 1000 Emergency Calls a year.   When you dial 9-1-1 rest assured that you will receive the best care humanly possible.
