EMS, AED and PulsePoint Information

The Salem Fire Department is a progressive Emergency Medical Services agency that delivers Advanced Life Support (ALS)-level quick-response and back-up ambulance services to the City of Salem.  Although ambulance services are provided by the City’s contracted transport provider (Falck Ambulance Northwest), Salem Fire Personnel responds to most medical calls to initiate assessment and treatment of patients.  When needed, SFD Firefighter/Paramedics will assist with patient care during transport to the hospital, often taking the lead during serious medical or trauma calls.  Salem Fire Department also maintains two back-up ALS Medic Units which are staffed by Department personnel during times of high call-volume.  The largest percentage of Salem Fire Department calls, over 70%, are medical in nature.
