Emergency Medical Services

RA 41 Interior

On June 1, 2007, the Sierra Madre Fire Department began the City's first Paramedic EMS Service, which operates in conjunction with fire department personnel. The Sierra Madre Fire Department responds to over 1000 calls per year; about 70% of these calls are emergency medical related.

Our emergency medical providers are on duty for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with two State of California licensed Los Angeles County Accredited Paramedics, per Los Angeles County Department of Health Services requirements. In addition to the two responding paramedics, a fire engine responds on every medical call with a minimum of three trained Emergency Medical Technicians. Our primary responding rescue ambulance is staffed by two paramedics and is fully equipped with advanced life support equipment.
