The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Division is responsible for providing basic and advanced level emergency medical care for persons suffering from medical, psychiatric or traumatic emergencies. This is accomplished by Advanced Life Support (ALS) licensed fire engines and a non-transport licensed rescue unit staffed by Firefighter-Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) and Firefighter-Paramedics, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Five first response units are strategically located throughout the city for rapid response to requests for service. More than 75% of the department’s requests for service are medically related calls. Deltona Fire Rescue's Firefighter-EMTs and Paramedics receive monthly in-service training to maintain their skills and learn new techniques and innovations in the field of pre-hospital health care. Additionally, patient care reports are reviewed on a random basis to assure the quality of care delivered and to identify future training needs.
We are now participants in Volusia County's C.A.R.E. program and can transport citizens to hospitals.
Our Emergency Medical Services Division is taken care of by EMS Captain, Adam Clatterbuck. Captain Clatterbuck is not only responsible for the continuing training of our Firefighter-EMTs and Paramedics, he also takes care of other department programs. He is our AHA Training Center Coordinator and oversees our monthly CPR training classes. He works closely with the local High School Health Academies inspiring teens to become pursue their passion of being in the medical field. The EMS Captain also manages some of our other department programs and public education, such as the EMS Bike team and community blood pressure screenings.
