Emergency Medical Services
 
What is EMS??
 
Emergency Medical Services (EMS) provide a wide variety of emergency interventions, such as CPR, airway management, treatment of breathing problems, cardiac care, defibrillation, trauma management and advanced life support medications. EMS is provided primarily by Paramedics with assistance from EMT's on fire apparatus. To learn more about EMS, stop by the station or send us e-mail with your questions.
 
Who are the EMTs??
 
At the Lisle-Woodridge Fire District, there are two levels of Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs): EMT-Basic, and EMT-Paramedic. EMT-B level does basic medical care (splinting, bandaging,  vital sign assessment, oxygen administration). EMT-Paramedic level personnel can perform basic medical care along with advanced medical care (medication delivery,  IV therapy, EKG interpretation, defibrillation, intubation).
Currently the Lisle-Woodridge Fire District operates three Advanced Life Support ambulances with a minimum of two Paramedics.  We also have have paramedics all Fire apparatus. 

Dial 9-1-1...fire, ambulance & police

9-1-1...these are the only numbers you need to remember in an emergency. No longer do you have to thumb through the phone book or find that list next to the phone...just dial 9-1-1. The 9-1-1 system in DuPage County is an enhanced system that gives the dispatcher your name, address and phone number on a computer screen as soon as you call. While talking to the dispatcher please remain calm, speak slowly and describe the problem as best as you can. For all emergencies, please use the 9-1-1 system, be it for fire, medical or police. It is a very efficient system that will help protect you.

Seat belts save lives!!!

  • Buckle up on every trip....most accidents occur within one mile of your home....don't take the chance!!!
  • Always use car seats for small children
  • Know the dangers of airbags and small children
