The Fredericksburg Fire Department provides emergency medical services (EMS) in addition to its fire suppression services. Our department staffs two advanced life support ambulances 24/7/365. Medic 1 responds to calls for assistance from our downtown station on Princess Anne Street and Medic 2 is stationed at 101 Altoona Drive.
All of our employees are minimally certified as Emergency Medical Technician - Basics. Many of the fire suppression personnel are also certified as intermediates or paramedics. The department provides additional first response services from fire apparatus when ambulances are delayed or additional support is needed.
Our advanced life support personnel provide services such as IV therapy and medications, in addition to advanced airway control techniques.
