Our mission is to provide emergency services to the community. 

 

EMS OR EMEREGENCY MEDICAL SERVICE JOB DUTIES AND FUNCTIONS:
MEDICAL AIDE:
An aide is someone that has very little training in emergency medicine, but sometimes is the greatest asset to the ambulance. The aide assists with the equipment that is needed, most aids are required to know CPR and how to assess vital signs.

WILDERNESS RESPONDER:
Is someone that has very little training in emergency medicine however is trained to deal with issues that arrize in emergency care in wilderness areas.

FIRST RESPONDER:
Next is the First Responder, has more knowledge than an aid but less than an EMT. First Responders are trained in basic first aid, these are people that have decided they have an interest, but may not want the responsibility of an Emergency Medical Technician.This knowledge comes with training in a state-required course, based on a variety of illnesses and injuries.

EMEREGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIAN MAY HAVE TRAINING IN EMT-B, EMT- Intermediate,PARAMEDIC.
Being an EMT (or emergency medical technician) comes with great deal of knowledge as well as being in charge of the whatever the call may be. This knowledge comes with training in a state-required course, based on a variety of illnesses and injuries.

EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES DRIVER:
And last but surely not least is the driver. The driver can hold any one of the above titles or just be there to drive the ambulance.The driver has as much responsibility as everyone in that he is to get the crew to the scene, help the crew with the patient, get everyone to the hospital and then get the crew back to the firehouse; all in a safe timely manner. In most opinions the driver is the most impotent person on the ambulance, for if it wasn’t for that person, the crew wouldn’t get to the call. Some companies run ambulance calls with a two person crew, the driver and the EMT; this can be very tiring for both people, so the more volunteers the better!
