Salem EMS

When most people think of a Fire Department, they think of FIRES.  In reality, 80%-90% of the calls that Fire Departments respond to, are medical. Each of our volunteers are trained, at minimum, in CPR and Emergency Medical Responder (EMR/1st Responder). More than half are EMT (Emergency Medical Technician), and we currently have 1 Paramedic.  Because continuing education is required for EMT and Paramedics, and because we want to be prepared to care for you and your loved ones, we have EMS training on the first Thursday of every month. If you need the continuing ed. hours, join us here from 7-9. (Sometimes the class may be more in depth, so we meet at 6. We will try to post that ahead of time. We will continually update the "Training Opportunities" on the left.)
