Fire Suppression & Emergency Medical Response

All Lake Chinook Fire and Rescue personel are trained to Oregon DPSST, NFPA 1001 Firefighter, and NWCG Wildland Fire Qualification System Guide, PMS 310-1 standards. They are consistently trained throughout the year to ensure all skills are maintained at the highest level possible. In addition, our trained personnel are First Responders or maintain an EMT-B 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.

Additionally, we have one EMT-P (Paramedic) volunteer and an EMT-I on staff trained in intermediate and advanced life support. The EMT-I is trained in medical and trauma patient assessment and management, emergency pharmacology, IV Therapy/Bolus Medications, airway-management and ventilation, electrocardiogram (EKG) monitoring and Cardiac Arrest Management, and special considerations such as, pediatrics, geriatrics and environmental emergencies.
