Each member of the NAFPD is trained to a level of Emergency Medical Technician-Basic (EMT-B) or Emergency Medical Technician-Paramedic (EMT-P) and are capable of assessing, treating, stabilizing, and transporting patients until definitive medical care is available at an appropriate medical facility.
The North Aurora Fire Protection District provides emergency medical services and care through use of the following equipment:
- Two (2) Advanced Life Support (ALS) Ambulances with 12 lead electrocardiogram (ECG) capability.
- Two (2) Advanced Life Support Engines:
An ALS Engine's responsibility on EMS calls is to accompany an ambulance for additional manpower or initiate ALS care until an ambulances arrival. Both Engines are equipped with all of the same equipment found on an ambulance aside from the ability to transport.
