Emergency Medical Services

The Sparks Fire Department serves the community with Intermediate Life Support Engine Companies. The Fire Department provides first response from each Fire Station with a crew of 3 to 4.

This allows firefighters to provide significant life saving skills such as advanced airway management, I.V. therapy and a number of drugs including dextrose for diabetics in distress, narcan for drug overdoses, albuterol for breathing difficulties and asthma, epinephrine for allergic reactions, and nitroglycerin for cardiac emergencies.

Advanced Life support and Transports are provided by a contracted private company under the direction of Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority (REMSA).
