Prescott Fire Department provides Emergency Medical Services throughout the City and surrounding area. Paramedics and EMT’s respond from each of Prescott’s five fire stations to the emergency scene. The strategic location of the fire stations allows engine companies to have an approximate 3-6 minute response time in most cases. This response time is very critical in those cases of severe injury or cardiac arrest.
Prescott Fire Department provides at least 1-2 Paramedics (ACLS) Advanced Cardiac Life Support personnel on every Fire Engine. Each Engine is equipped to handle life threatening emergencies including cardiac arrest, stroke, gunshots, traumatic injuries, difficulty breathing, seizures, heat and cold emergencies, and many more.
Each Firefighter must obtain and maintain a minimum certification level of (EMT) Emergency Medical Technician Basic. All Firefighters are trained in CPR, and the use of a (AED) Automatic External Defibrillator.
