The Cosumnes Fire Department (CFD) provides advanced life support (ALS), pre-hospital care, and ambulance transportation from fire apparatus and medic units throughout the District, including the Cities of Elk Grove and Galt. CFD is also the primary ambulance transportation provider for southern Sacramento County, including the Wilton, Herald, Courtland, and Walnut Grove Fire Districts. The EMS Division supports the 24-hour operation of nine ALS engine companies, one ALS ladder truck company, and eight ALS transporting ambulances.
The EMS Lab, located at the Fire Department’s Training Facility, offers state-of-the-art training equipment for continuing education and training for District and regional EMS providers. The EMS Division utilizes a Mobile Training Unit (former ambulance) to bring realistic training to units in the field. This allows on-duty personnel to engage in practical simulation-based training while still being able to respond to emergencies.
EMS staff support numerous ventures with private and public partnerships to ensure the maintenance and development of the community’s rights for competent, timely, and appropriate patient assessment, care, and transport.
