The Cosumnes Fire Department provides ambulance transportation and pre-hospital emergency medical services to the citizens of Elk Grove and Galt; while also providing transportation services for Wilton, Herald, Courtland, and Walnut Grove. Staff operate seven full-time and two dayshift ambulance companies in order to provide those services, which are all overseen by the Department’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Division.
The EMS Lab, located at the Fire Department’s Training Facility, offers state-of-the-art training equipment for continuing education and training for District and regional EMS providers. The EMS section also utilizes a Mobile Training Unit designed to bring realistic simulation training to District fire stations in order to help crews minimize their out of area time from their first due response areas.
EMS staff support numerous ventures with private and public partnerships to ensure the maintenance and development of the community’s rights for competent, timely, and appropriate patient assessment, care, and transport.
