This service provides medical support for fire departments during fire and hazmat operations and law enforcement during SORT team operations. CCEMS also has a dedicated team of paramedics that provide first aid at large community events. CCEMS has four stations and seven Advanced Life Support Units placed throughout the county and uses system status management to ensure a rapid response to any emergency.
