At West Metro Fire Rescue, we answer more than 35,000 calls a year. The majority of those calls are medical emergencies. That's why we require all our firefighters to be state-certified emergency medical technicians - basic (EMT-Bs), with many of them certified as more highly trained paramedics.
Our EMS crews provide advanced life support to the residents and visitors to our area. Our goal is to provide the fastest and most professional EMS care available in Colorado.
Each apparatus in the West Metro Fire Protection District is staffed with at least one paramedic, offering advanced life support. Whether an ambulance or fire engine arrives first, we have the equipment and training to immediately provide the highest level of care possible outside the hospital.
Students currently in EMT or Paramedic educational programs are eligible to request a ride along on an ambulance.
**Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are not accepting ride along requests at this time**
