First Responders

WPD Ambulance is very active with the First Responder groups in their area. The groups are strategically located in smaller communities in the WPD Ambulance coverage area. The groups are responsible for responding to calls for help within their area and to provide patient care until an ambulance can arrive. WPD Ambulance has First Responder instructors on staff that initially train all the groups. All groups are also trained in the use of Automated External Defibrillators and have this equipment ready for their use. The groups then meet on a regular basis in order maintain their continuing education, which is facilitated by WPD Ambulance's EMTs and Paramedics.
