The City of Henderson Fire Department currently has seven transport-capable Paramedic Rescue units servicing the city 24 hours a day, each staffed with Firefighter/Paramedics. Nine Fire Engines, two Truck Companies, and one Heavy Rescue are equipped and staffed to provide first-response services from nine fire stations throughout the city. Each of the nine fire stations has an engine company staffed with Firefighter/Paramedics who provide advanced life support first response. The Truck Companies are also staffed with Firefighter/Paramedics and the Heavy Rescue is staffed with EMT-trained personnel. All emergency response units are equipped with defibrillators. All front-line Paramedic Rescue units are equipped with 12-lead EKG monitors.
We are one of three paid fire departments in Southern Nevada that provides complete EMS service, from first response to treatment and transport of the sick and injured to area hospitals.
The Department is one of seven fire departments in the nation to be accredited through the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services (CAAS). The Emergency Medical Services Division also coordinates the EMS Operations Committee. The committee is made up of members throughout the ranks of Firefighter, Firefighter/Paramedic, Captain, Medical Services Officers, Division Chiefs, and Deputy Chiefs. The EMS Operations Committee meets monthly to review and discuss and recommend changes to the EMS Program as well as review and discuss quality improvement benchmarks that have been established. Processes have been put in place to identify areas of strengths and opportunities to improve the service provided to our citizens.
