LEGO ANGELES FIRE DEPARTMENT EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES.
The EMS Division of the LAFD was founded in 1970 when the first paramedic unit was bought for the department. Six firefighters underwent training in which they would use the skills taught during priority medical emergencies. Transportation services were handled by city units two years later in 1972, but by private companies before that. The LAFD handles a majority of the city's EMS responses. We stand by for large gatherings and events. Every single piece of the apparatus in the department is a registered EMS Response vehicle by the state and the County of Lego Angeles. Every firefighter is a certified Emergency Medical Technician at the BLS level.
