Fire Suppression & Emergency Medical Response

All of our fire wildland fire suppression personnel are certified to the NWCG Firefighter 1 level or better. They are consistently trained throughout the year to ensure all skills are maintained at the highest level possible. Our structural firefighters are trained to NFPA 1001 Firefighter I standards. In addition, a percentage of our suppression personnel are First Responders or maintain an EMT certification allowing them to perform Basic Life Support. EMTs are trained to assess a patient's condition, and to perform such emergency medical procedures as are needed to maintain a patent airway with adequate breathing and cardiovascular circulation until the patient can be transferred to an appropriate destination for advanced medical care. Interventions include cardiopulmonary resuscitation, defibrillation, controlling severe external bleeding, preventing shock, body immobilization to prevent spinal damage, and splinting of bone fractures.
