The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Division is responsible for training and maintaining the certification of the EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians), Advanced EMTs, and Paramedics for the City of Greenwood. The division operates as an Advanced Life Support Non-Transport at
the Paramedic level.
To fulfill the need for quality EMS response, all Greenwood Fire Department firefighters are cross-trained as Emergency Medical Technicians. The EMS Division Chief is responsible for day-to-day operations, supply and equipment issues, and quality assurance.
The division recertifies its EMTs annually. This process requires many hours of continuing education. Training for the EMTs takes place on a monthly basis with 3-6 trainings per month and quarterly EMS evaluations.
Greenwood Fire Department has four ALS engines with EMS equipment for emergency runs. The EMS Division strives to provide the best patient care to Greenwood citizens and visitors.
Ambulance services are provided in coordination with Seals Ambulance.
