Our duty is to protect and preserve human life in the event of a trauma-related incident or serious medical condition. Emergency Medical Services (EMS) responds by assessing, treating, stabilizing, and transporting patients until definitive medical care is available at an appropriate facility. Each EMS unit is staffed by certified Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT)-Paramedics, who are trained and monitored by the staff of the Emergency Room. The Division’s Medical Intensive Care Ambulances are strategically located in fire stations throughout the city. These ambulances are supplied with state-of-the-art equipment, and coupled with our highly trained personnel, are an emergency room on wheels – capable of handling a variety of life saving procedures. Besides full-time ambulances, the division can activate Peak Period units during times of high call volume.​
