Roseville Fire First in the State to Offer Advanced Life Support Services

roseville-fire-als

Beginning August 24, first responders at the Roseville Fire Department will be able to respond to calls with enhanced life-saving capabilities through their innovative Advanced Life Support (ALS) program.

Through the ALS program, paramedics are able to provide certain specialized care that was once only available from partnering ambulance agencies. Roseville Fire is the first Fire Department in the state to be able to provide the enhanced services.

As emergency responders, we want to give the best care possible as quickly as possible," says Roseville Fire Chief David Brosnahan. "With our new ALS program, we now have the ability to assist and stabilize the patient before the ambulance arrives to the scene.

The paramedics at Roseville Fire are now trained and certified to administer certain medications and to use cardiac monitors and automated CPR machines. Chief Brosnahan adds, “When every second matters, quicker access to these enhanced services could potentially save lives.” 

The equipment and startup costs through 2022 are fully funded by American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) funds. Starting in 2023, the program will be included in the Roseville budget and tax levy.

Brosnahan anticipates this program will be a great asset to the community and hopes other departments will use this program to build their own ALS programs. 

Truly, this is an enhancement we're excited to be able to provide, and we'd love to share the blueprint of establishing this program with other agencies in the state.
