EMS

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Bureau

The "Rescue" in Dallas Fire-Rescue stands for our fleet of 40 front line Rescues, 3 peak demand Rescues and 3 paramedic engines.

Rescues (EMS Units) are staffed with 2 firefighter/paramedics 24 hours per day. These firefighter/paramedics respond to medical emergencies, heart attacks, major accidents and all other types of emergency medical calls. They also respond to structure fires to assist with medical help for victims and/or firefighters.

Peak Demand Rescues are staffed with 2 firefighter/paramedics and operate between 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. on weekdays and 4 p.m. and 2 a.m. on weekends. These units are strategically placed in our busiest areas.

Paramedic Engines are Fire Engines staffed with firefighter/paramedics. They carry the same advanced life support equipment as the rescues.
