Emergency Medical Services

The Fire Department has personnel that are trained in emergency medical procedures. Their licensures include First Responders, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT’s), Advanced Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT's) and Paramedics. The Department responds to medical emergencies as a first responder agency. Medical personnel treat and stabilize patients prior to the arrival of the ambulance and assist the crew as necessary. Fire Department medical personnel work under the authority of Hamilton County Emergency Medical Services and its medical director.

Hamilton County Emergency Medical Services’ ambulance “Medic 8” is located in the Town’s Fire Department complex. Ambulance service is available 24 hours a day and is staffed by licensed paramedics, who participate in the county-wide emergency service system by providing pre-hospital care, cardiac monitoring, drug therapy or trauma care.
