EMS stands for Emergency Management Service. This means that we can provide medical assistance when responding to calls. 21 firefighters are also certified paramedics. The balance of our staff are Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs). Our ambulance service allows us to bring life-saving equipment--as well as skill--to our calls.
Our command structure provides vision and leadership while also enabling oversight of day-to-day activities at the fire stations.
The Fire Department hosts quarterly COPE (Citizens Organized to Prepare for Emergencies) presentations to help you prepare your family and your neighborhood for an emergency or natural disaster. Learn more here.
