Emergency Medical Services

The EMS Division is headed by Battalion Chief Scott Sedgwick.

Approximately 78% of emergency calls  contain a component of emergency medical services (EMS). The mission of our EMS program is to be the leader in prehospital emergency medical services through well trained personnel rapidly providing excellent, cost effective care to all patients by utilizing appropriate equipment and technology in our unique environment.  All of the District’s safety personnel are qualified to work as either a paramedic or EMT (emergency medical technician). 

Through our relationship with North Tahoe Fire, we provide Advanced Life Support Paramedics and ambulance transport service to the north and west shores of Lake Tahoe, from the Nevada state line to Emerald Bay, to Alpine Meadows, and on the lake waters of Tahoe in cooperation with US Coast Guard.
