EMS Capabilities
Monday, January 9, 2017

In addition to running fire emergencies, NWVFD is also a licensed first responder organization (FRO) through the Texas Department of State Health Services. All apparatus and fire stations are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with medically trained personnel ranging from EMT's to Paramedics and routinely respond to medical emergencies with our EMS partners at Harris County Emergency Corps (HCEC). We carry all the standard medical equipment for first response medical treatment but also carry a few other pieces of equipment not commonly found on fire trucks. Each first out Engine company carries a medical bag, AED, cervical collars, backboard, Lucas CPR device, pet oxygen masks, Oxygen/Carbon Monoxide measurement device, and two Cyanokits.
