The City of Trenton is privileged to have highly-skilled, trained and certified paramedics that provide a consistently high level of emergency care to victims of illness and injury throughout the community. The Trenton Fire Department understands the responsibility they have to the lives that are entrusted to them and are passionate and honored to serve the emergency medical needs of our community.
The Trenton Fire Department EMS unit has provided three Advanced Life Support Ambulances 24 hours a day 7 days a week to the community since 1996. Their mission is to provide the best pre-hospital care to the citizens of Trenton when needed.
The City of Trenton has a combined Fire and EMS department to better meet the needs of the city. As one department they are able to provide a more streamlined, cost-efficient service. All members of the Fire Department are cross-trained and licensed Paramedics making them capable of working on an ambulance or fire apparatus when called to do so. This ensures that all first responders to an emergency situation have the same capabilities, procedural understanding, and internal working relationships that provide a higher level of service than fire and emergency units that are overseen as two separate units.
The EMS unit for the City of Trenton has always been at the forefront of quality care and response time for our community.
Fire and EMS combined respond to more than 2600 calls a year, of which 85-90% are EMS related calls.
