Our staff is trained in various levels of emergency medicine ranging from First Responder to Paramedic. While most volunteers are firefighters, there is an option to serve only in the EMS Division. Divison members are cross-trained in base fire knowledge from 6 key areas of training from the SAFD fire academy curriculum including safety, SCBA, and extinguishers.
Many of the EMS Division staff take advantage of the broader application period, and then move on to the next available Fire Academy to become firefighters.
Our EMS Division is a place for those individuals who are currently certified (or soon will be) at the EMT level or higher in the State of Colorado, and have either missed the Academy application deadline and still want to serve until the next Academy, or for those that have no interest in the fire service and only in EMS.
Those wishing to be considered for the SAFD EMS Division should fill out a standard application. EMS Division applications are accepted February-October.
