Emergency Medical Services

The Folsom Fire Department currently provides paramedic/Advanced Life Support services from all four stations utilizing cross-trained firefighter/paramedics. These personnel staff all fire vehicles including the engine companies, ladder truck and paramedic ambulances.

The EMS Division participates in a county-wide resource deployment plan that ensures the closest available emergency crew responds to the scene of emergencies, regardless of geopolitical boundaries. This process enables a seamless and reciprocal service delivery system.

The EMS Division also develops and administers various internal training curricula in order to maintain required state and local certifications of emergency personnel, as well as external education programs for the community including cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automate external defibrillator (AED) use.
