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 capable of handling a variety of life saving procedures. Besides the three full-time staffed ambulances, the division can quickly activate an additional ambulance during times of high call volume.

The EMS Division is supervised by an EMS Director with a line staff of three officers, a force of 24 Emergency Medical Technicians, a Compliance Officer and a Division Training Officer.
