Emergency Medical Services (EMS)

Welcome

The delivery of high quality, effective patient care is our focus and commitment to you.


Since 1881 the Georgetown Fire Department has provided all-risk fire, rescue and emergency medical services to residents, visitors and businesses within the City of Georgetown and Emergency Service District #8 (ESD 8).

Nearly 80% of Georgetown’s emergency responses are for medical aid.

To meet this need, we ensure that all fire fighters are trained and certified as either Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) or Paramedics.

Paramedics – who are trained to provide care in the most serious medical emergencies – are located at neighborhood fire stations throughout the City. The Paramedics and EMTs staff both our fire engines and medic units.

That means all in our community, any where in our community, can receive the highest level of care within minutes.
