Sun City Fire and Medical Department’s Emergency Medical Services Division’s main priority is to provide exceptional and expedient customer service to the citizens and communities we serve. Sun City firefighters are trained to provide the highest possible level of care in the field. Additionally, all of our engine and ladder companies are constantly staffed with a minimum of 2 paramedics and 2 EMTs per unit. They work a 48/96 shift schedule and participate in the Phoenix Regional Automatic Aid System, which includes over 26 communities in the metropolitan area.
Sun City Fire and Medical Department also operates a civilian fleet of state-of the-art Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulances that are constantly staffed with a paramedic and an EMT. The ambulances run on the 48/96 hours operating schedule which coincides with the fire suppression personnel schedule. SCFMD has been successful in the development of partnerships with local hospitals to further strengthen the overall emergency pre-hospital system.
These partnerships have enabled us to provide the best emergency medical customer service delivery system to the citizens we serve in the communities of Sun City, Youngtown and Citrus Point. Through a mutual aid agreement with the cities of Surprise, El Mirage, Peoria, and the Arizona Fire Medical Authority, SCFMD ambulances can respond to those jurisdictions in critical situations where the patient is in severe peril and immediate transportation is required.
Sun City Fire and Medical Department provides the best possible emergency medical service delivery system to the citizens and customers we serve.
