EMS Division

Responsibilities
Palm Beach Gardens Fire Rescue Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Division was established in 1995 and provides both Advanced and Basic Life Support Treatment and Transport. This is accomplished using a very talented group of firefighters who maintain certification as either Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) or Paramedics. Paramedic personnel maintain the highest minimum ALS certification levels of any ground agency in Palm Beach County.

In addition, Palm Beach Gardens Fire Rescue also provides tactically trained paramedics for the Police SWAT Team. The Division currently operates five ALS rescue transport units and four ALS engines as part of the minimum response standards. Each shift has an EMS Captain who provides supervision of field staff and insures that quality assurance standards are maintained.
