    Post DOD Fire Departments running ALS


    Are there ANY DOD fire departments out there that are running ALS? Either as a first response or as the ambulance provider? Wacky stuff is happening here, and I would like to see how other base fire departments are involved in EMS. Preferably Army departments, but I'll be happy to hear from all.

    You may want to check the Parris Island Fire Dept web site. I believe that they run ALS-- They didn't when I went through boot camp down there-- 1993, but I saw their web site recently, and I believe that they do in fact run ALS. They can be found either through the "firehouse.com" links page, or at www.fire-ems.net which provides links to on-line FD's. If I find it I'll post it here.......

    Hope this helps.

    I'm pretty sure Fort Belvoir, VA runs an ALS unit -- Medic 463. Fort Belvoir operates two structural stations and a crash station and runs mutual aid with Fairfax County, the largest fire-rescue department in Virginia. Cheers. Vinny.
