Ambulance: Current & Future Plans
River Falls Ambulance is very progressive in providing high quality advanced life support care to the residents in which we serve. Below are just some of the advancements we are currently doing or plan on doing to improve our service. Being one of the fasted growing communities in the state percentage wise, we need to keep on top of our ever-increasing demands for ambulance services.
River Falls Ambulance has just upgraded to the Paramedic level on January 1, 2007. The upgrade comes from constant increase in 911 calls and the demand for interfacility transfers from our local hospital.
With the constant increase in 911 related calls, our service is now expanding our membership to hire additional qualified personnel. Anyone interested in applying please visit our applications page or download the application and return it to our service. EMT-Basic classes are run annually starting in August and ending in December. The class runs two nights per week usually from 6-10pm.
River Falls Ambulance is currently working on feasibility studies to see if additional stations are needed and their geographical locations. As our community continues to grow with industry and population, we need to look at future expansion of our EMS department to ensure we are providing the best response to all residents we serve.
