Our firefighters are cross-trained as Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs). So when a fire truck and firefighters arrive at the scene of an accident or fire, they are able to provide vital rescue and medical services – quickly and cost effectively.
When your medical incident is not life-threatening, our EMTs will provide medical aid and a recommended course of action. If you need to be evaluated by a physician at the hospital, they will prepare you for transport, which is handled by an ambulance provider such as Olympic Ambulance.
If your medical condition is life-threatening our response will also include a team of Paramedics.In partnership with Thurston County Medic One, Lacey Fire District 3 staffs three paramedic units that provide care and transportation to the most critically ill and injured patients. These units are equipped with state of the art equipment that is used under the oversight of an emergency physician who serves as the Medical Program Director.
Two of the paramedic units are stationed within the District, while the third unit provides service to the southeast portions of the county from its location at the Southeast Thurston Regional Fire Authority’s headquarters in Yelm. All three of the paramedic units along with those operated by the Olympia and Tumwater Fire Departments are available to respond throughout the entire county whenever they are needed.
Thurston County’s Emergency Medical Services System is one of the best performing systems in the entire nation and this is due in large part to the excellent training and experience required for responders.
