A year ago voters approved unallocated funds for our District to enhance emergency medical services delivery.
We are proud to announce that the District is now providing Advanced Level Service (ALS) care from the fire trucks. ALS is life-saving protocols and skills that extend Basic Life Support care provided to the sick or injured before or during transportation to a medical facility, and includes any necessary stabilization in connection with that transportation. The fire trucks are now equipped with the necessary equipment and nine (9) personnel have been trained and certified to administer this higher level of care. In the coming years, the District will continue to work toward enhancing delivery of emergency medical services.
With seventy (70) percent of emergency response calls in our District this is important. It is a means of giving more to our community in an area of real need. Our motto isn’t just words for us. We strive for excellence truly Because We Care.
