Are the Firefighters trained in First Aid?
All Career Firefighters are “cross-trained” as Emergency Medical Technician – Paramedics (EMT – Paramedics, or just Paramedics). The majority of the Part-Time Firefighters are also Paramedics. The remaining part-time firefighters are Emergency Medical Technician – Basics (EMT-B). Every piece of fire apparatus is staffed with a minimum one certified Paramedic. Additionally, the Advanced Life Support (ALS) response car, fire engines, and ladder truck are equipped with ALS equipment and can provide advanced medical care until a transport unit (ambulance) arrives in the event that they arrive first on scene.
